There was no more charismatic or controversial a figure during the swinging ‘60s than Scottish psychiatrist R D Laing. Dubbed “the white Martin Luther King” and the “high priest of anti-psychiatry”, Laing was as famous as Dylan. In 1965, he established Kingsley Hall in London as a medication-free community for those seriously affected by schizophrenia. His methods flew in the face of a medical establishment that considered Laing a dangerous radical. Mad to Be Normal offers a powerful account of Laing’s Kingsley Hall experiment with a stunning performance from David Tennant that truly gets under the skin of an utterly compelling figure.
