Lessons in Temperament

Kingston Grand Theatre is set to host an extraordinary live theatre event, “Lessons in Temperament,” from January 23rd to the 28th. This unique and compelling performance delves into the intricate web of family relationships, intertwined with the fascinating art and science of piano tuning. The play, which has garnered critical acclaim, offers a profound narrative about four neurodiverse brothers, each grappling with their own challenges—OCD, autism, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. This narrative framework provides a deeply engaging and empathetic exploration of mental health and family dynamics.

“Lessons in Temperament” is particularly noteworthy for its blend of personal storytelling and technical artistry. The play’s creator and performer, James Smith, brings to the stage a combination of his musical talent and theatrical innovation, offering audiences an immersive and emotionally charged experience. This performance is especially timely, as it follows the recent success of the play’s adaptation into a feature film, further highlighting its cultural and artistic significance. Whether you’re drawn to the themes of mental health and family, or simply appreciate innovative theatre, “Lessons in Temperament” at the Kingston Grand Theatre is an event not to be missed.

The event is finished.
