Mental Health in our Community

Interactive Theater – Raising Awareness about Mental Health
Encouraging Community Participation from Under-Represented Groups

What is Interactive Theater? Short plays requiring problem solving (written mostly by people with mental health issues) are performed first without interruption or solving any issues presented. When repeated, audience volunteers can stop scenes, replace characters and act out potential solutions. Discussion follows each intervention.

Performances are free (donations welcome). Light refreshments provided. Wheelchair accessible.
