As our community emerges from the pandemic, life’s challenges increasingly stress individuals and their relationships. It’s uncomfortable to talk about it. Many don’t know where to get help.

Through the unique experience of live theatre, this compelling performance of the Oscar-winning Ordinary People seeks to encourage contemplation and conversation, destigmatize mental illness, and increase empathy for those who are struggling.

With professionally moderated talkbacks, thoughtful marketing, and community partners, audiences will find a safe environment to explore what it means to be ordinary – to be human.

This program is funded in part by a $4,900 Quick Grant.
