Dolly Sen is a writer, director, artist, filmmaker, poet, performer, raconteur, playwright, mental health consultant, music-maker and public speaker. She was born in 1970 in London, and had her first psychotic experience aged 14. She dropped out of school, and has had to share her life with severe mental health problems ever since. Despite being told she'd never amount to anything - that she'd probably end up in Broadmoor - she has achieved astounding success, proving, as Dolly says: 'that the mind is an amazing thing; it can drive you mad and inspire you in the same breath... You can do anything if you believe you can'.
Dolly Sen's new book, Am I Still Laughing?, is the follow up to her acclaimed memoir, The World is Full of Laughter. Her first book started out as a possible suicide note and ended up as a celebration of life. The brutally honest account of living with madness has been an inspiration to readers around the world, and has positively changed many peoples' lives. Dolly's father was a small-time singer and actor, and through him she worked as an extra on various films including the Star Wars epic, The Empire Strikes Back, until Steven Spielberg sacked her because he thought her child-breasts were too big for the part of an underfed child slave. Confused by sci-fi reality and day-to-day fiction Dolly traces her madness 'all the way back to when I worked on The Empire Strikes Back. It wasn't a film, it was reality, and it was up to me to maintain the good and evil in the universe'.
Since the publication of The World is Full of Laughter by Chipmunka in 2002, Dolly has published a further three books; taken on performance roles at The Young Vic, the Royal Festival Hall, and around Europe; undertaken a poetry tour; won a poetry award from Poet Laureate Andrew Motion; directed two plays and several TV films; and performed spoken word at City Hall and Oxford University. In August this year she was featured on the Radio 4 programme Between Ourselves, discussing the reality of living with schizophrenia. She's still mad, but is she still laughing?
Dolly is a member of the Camberwell-based charity Creative Routes, an award winning interdisciplinary arts organisation run by, and for, the survivors of the mental health system and of mental distress. It aims to dissolve the stigma of mental illness by encouraging the unique creativity of mad people, promoting mental well-being and the acceptance of individuality in the wider community.
The Mad Book Fair offers the opportunity to buy and browse books, and to meet Dolly and other writers; it also features the launch of a major poetry competition taking the theme of 'lost sheep' as inspiration. The prize will be awarded by Andrew Motion in the new year.
