Imperfectly Sane Too was a community theatre project of the Mental Health Foundation of the ACT, supported by the ACT Government through ArtsACT. All the pieces in the show- songs, stories, readings, monologues and skits, were written or devised by Canberra people living with a mental illness. The show ran for four performances in May at the Belconnen community theatre to good houses and excellent critical reviews.
