Italy Uncovered – 10mg

Written by Maria Teresa Berardelli
Book Now

A sharp, disarmingly astute comment on the world of pharmaceuticals and wellbeing. With its rhythmic, paired down dialogue, 10 mg explores an apparently stable family as a metaphor for dependence.

10 mg was a finalist for the Hystrio Prize, where it was awarded an Honourable Mention.

10mg is written by Maria Teresa Berardelli, translated by Edward Fortes and directed by Kate O’Connor
