"The joy of Max Morton's Sisterson Foods is that it isn't afraid to be bold and stand out." (The Stage) A brutally honest, poetic testimonial about one person's struggle with mental health issues. Using spoken word poetry, home video footage and a hip-hop inspired soundtrack. The show discusses all aspects of depression from suicide, panic attacks to how it affects every relationship in your life. Sisterson Foods is an exploration of life, love, loss and fear. "The tone of the piece oscillates wildly, ranging from gentle quite passages to full on aggression to witty one-lingers highlighting an internal struggle and conflicted mind set.".
Stevie Smith to music by Mike Skinner. (The Streets)
I’m a Fourth Monkey and East 15 graduate, it was during my training that I started trying to write plays. Then whilst at East 15 I started to write and perform my own poetry. Which eventually evolved into a multimedia show “Sisterson Foods” , I devised around my own experiences with mental health issues. Using spoken word poetry, home video footage and a hip-hop inspired soundtrack. I try to honestly explain what it’s like living with these conditions on a day-to-day bias.
At the end of my time at East 15, a few friends and I formed a graduate company called Full Pelt Theatre in 2016. Since then we have gone onto tour three shows successfully around various fringe festivals. (Brighton Fringe, Plymouth Fringe, Ventnor Fringe & Pulse Festival) A one-month run in Edinburgh of our comedy about two babies still inside the womb entitled “Wombmates: Is There Life After Birth.” Two shows accepted for runs at Vault Festival (Wombmates & Sisterson Foods). And our Debut Show “The Going Away days”, which tackles toxic masculinity with in Football Hooliganism successfully, toured which culminated with a sold out run at The New Diorama.

The Ventnor Fringe Review**** I am sure I am not alone in thinking that I know a lot of people who would benefit from seeing this performance as a way of beginning to accept and understand their own journey.
