The Dream Speaks Back is a triple autobiography, bringing together the personal memories and dream-fictions of three creative individuals:
· Sue Hampton, adult/children’s author with 32 published books, three of them praised by Michael Morpurgo, and ambassador for Alopecia UK.
· Cy Henty, comedian, stage/screen writer & mental health worker, has toured with Russell Brand and played major roles in seven of Pat Higgins’ films.
· Leslie Tate, UEA graduate, author of three novels and a non-binary memoir now turned into an award-winning film.
As life-writing, The Dream Speaks Back describes growing up in unusual families, how it feels to be ‘different’, and the adult search for the inner child. As an imaginative journey, it explores gender and mental health issues. It’s also a very funny portrait of working in the arts, full of crazy characters, their ups and downs, and their stories.
