About this show

Standing on My Knees tells the tale of Catherine, an up-and-coming poet who has recently returned home after a lengthy hospitalization for schizophrenia. With the help of Joanne, her psychiatrist, and Alice, her good friend and publisher, Catherine hopes to find the balance of regaining a normal life while also getting back to work on her writing. At a party, she meets handsome stockbroker Robert and there is instant attraction, which leads to a new relationship. Will Catherine be able to navigate the waters of staying healthy, falling in love, and trying to write, or will all of this turbulence lead her back to her demons? Standing on My Knees tackles the ever-relevant issue of how creativity is perhaps tied to madness and how far one can safely go in the name of art.
