Good Intentions is a play that examines the dialogic interactions between self-identity, language and power in the context of mental health advocacy. Framed by Vygotsky’s sociocultural theory and the lens of autoethnography, the play portrays the 'self' as a by-product of intervening factors such as medication, professional practice, relational dynamics, bureaucratic systems and prevailing social norms. The play observes the tension between self and society, and interrogates the idea of 'the greater good', what is 'good', for whom is it good and at what cost.
