Review: 0 DAYS WITHOUT CRYING at the Landor Theatre

0 days without crying Living with mental health issues is like having rain clouds around your waist. It’s raining around half of you, but the other half you might be fine. Some of the time. These, and other memorable images, populate Caterina Incisa’s solo show 0 Days Without Crying: part-standup, part-memoir.
