Anna’s brother Jamie is her best friend, confidant and mentor. Together they do things like jump off cliffs or lie on their backs to watch the night sky, secure in their relationship. However when Jamie becomes jealous and controlling Anna realizes she must seek help. What follows next is a revelation to all, especially to Anna.

A powerful examination of family, friends and self-knowledge, Goodbye Jamie Boyd is a multi-artform show with relevance to all teenagers and the wider community.

“…serves as a potent illustration of the effects and repercussions of schizophrenia on sufferers, their families and friends…an involving 70 minutes with a sharp-edged audiovisual component.” - Eight Nights A Week
