Solms and Baumann direct spotlight on mental health

24 February 2015

Mental health specialists Professor Mark Solms and Dr Sean Baumann will be participating in a post-show discussion about the treatment of mental illness. This follows the performance of the award-winning play Blue/Orange in the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio on Wednesday, 25 February, at 19h00.

Directed by UCT alumnus and senior lecturer at UCT's Drama School, Clare Stopford, Blue/Orange is a psychological thriller which brings psychiatric theory and practice under scrutiny. Solms, renowned neuropsychologist, will be in conversation with psychiatrist Baumann, whose diagnosis of Shrien Dewani recently made international headlines. Published experts in their fields, the academics will discuss psychiatric diagnosis in underprivileged communities and address the issue of professional and personal boundaries between practitioner and patient.

Blue/Orange runs until 14 March and tickets are R130 and are available through Computicket on 0861 915 8000, online at or at any Shoprite Checkers outlet.
