The winning script of our Young Writer’s Competition, The Chicken Salad of a Troubled Mind is set in the deep and murky subconscious of a troubled mind. We follow the footsteps of Sarah as she attempts to lunch with her mum, and bond with her sister, without her innermost thoughts brimming over the edge.
