The Bridgend Suicides – Could Theatre be a factor? — 9 Comments

  1. BUNK. Pure and simple. This opinion piece was not published because it contains rumors and unsubstantiated claims made over a year ago.

    Theatre, film, novels/comic books, and TV all have suicide, murder, and atrocities as part of a story plot. Imagine if Shakespeare had been censored or banned – we wouldn’t have Romeo & Juliet, Othello, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, etc. Authors like Ernest Hemingway and Virginia Woolf would also not be published. We cannot fault young people for joining the military and dying abroad because they saw “Captain America” or Spielberg’s film “Saving Private Ryan”.

    Art should never be censored out of baseless fear. However, parental involvement and discretion as to what is appropriate for their child to view is important.

    If you allow links, there’s a technical study that was done on the Bridgend suicides at PLOS ONE: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0071713

    • Thankyou for your comments.

      Art can be extremely powerful, as can NLP and neither should be underestimated.

      We allow informative links so everyone can make their own decisions.

    • The conclusions of the study is that further investigation into the cause of the suicide cluster and the role of the media should be done. Doesn’t seem like debunking to me. The Jedi Nudger committing suicide after being “exposed” and the powerful, disturbing images of hanging at something advertised as an all ages show is bizarre. It’s not just that the images were shown, but apparently they were shown in a suggestive way (nudging). As someone who has witnessed a suicide those images surfaced strong feelings and thoughts.

  2. There are far too many suicides in dramas at the moment including television drama. We are being saturated with them.

    However it is not certain that the photos above are of No Fit State Circus performers. I did some research and the street scenes are in Edinburgh presumably the Edinburgh Fringe Festival was being staged at the time. Other alternative circus companies take part in it and not just No Fit State Circus.

  3. No one believes that the young people of bridgend hung themselves because they were depressed or that they were on antidepressants like the police stated on many occasions because if that was the case then why have the police been warned by their superiors not to talk about it because if they do it would mean dismissal from the force with immediate effect, now that doesn’t sound like these are just sucides because it seems to me that there is cover up of something that they do not wish the rest of us to know about?. The official figure of young people committing sucide in Bridgend is from 2007 is 79 and that figure is only the tip of the iceberg of the true figure of what’s going on in Bridgend and sourounding areas because if these young people were killing themselves because they lived in a depressing area then why isn’t it happening else, because believe me there are far worse places in South Wales to live than bridgend for example Maerdy,Tonypandy,Porth,Ebbw Vale, Tredegar,Merthyr, Aberdare, Treherbert yet there are no sucides going on in these places on the scale of what’s going on in Bridgend. And why did Justin Beecham one of the young men who later committed sucide state in the film Bridgend the English version on YouTube at the 26 minute mark and I quote “WITH ALL THESE MURDERS GOING ON AROUND HERE THEY’LL BE NO ONE LEFT BEFORE LONG, why say murder instead of sucide.

      • Did you watch that part when Justin stated With all these murders going on around here there will be no one left before long, yet the other people in the room didn’t react to what he said including his mother they remained quiet as if they already knew that there was something more sinister going on.

  4. Apart from all the ridiculous mad ravings above, the only thing that seems absolutely certain is the you & your unsubstantiated ravings/accusations hounded one poor innocent man, i.e. Phil Blight, to take his own life. Talk about hounding someone to death – YOU SHOULD BE SERIOUSLY ASHAMED OF YOURSELF & YOUR LITTLE ‘WITCH-HUNT’!! …

    … If there’s anyone who deserves a rope…

  5. Young people can be very naive, yet simultaneously very intelligent. As a young adult in rural England I had lots of ‘mystical’ beliefs (before becoming a highly sceptical and rational adult). I would guess that irrational beliefs about afterlife, reinforced by the brutality of losing friends could be a contributing factor.

    It also seems to me that the censorship of journalism (and the police?) in the Bridgend case is encouraging conspiracy theories, another way people romanticise hard truths.

    It is an interesting article, but finding a clear, single cause for the suicides seems unlikely.

    4 young adults I knew committed suicide. I’m sure there are many more in circles of people I don’t know (whenever I return to the town there are lots of people I don’t recognise). Not a cluster, but to me it seems quite a lot for a small town with no particular economic hardships.
