Built by the community, for the community.

IMG_0027“The production was phenomenal from stem to stern.”

“It’s a wonderful reminder for all of us, that you have no idea what’s happening in other people’s lives.”

“This play is wonderful & beautiful.”

“I am for sure going to attend the full production!”

“One of the best plays that I have seen. A must see for everyone to help erase the stigma of mental illness.”

We have already learned a ton from our audience! We shared some laughs and you have helped us shed light on some dark moments. With everyone’s continual input, Breaking Through is feeling even more like a story built by the community. We have always wanted this play to become the mirror that reflects the lives of those affected by mental illness, hearing feedback from you is the best way to do this.

Which character resonates most for you? What scene should be cut? What should we definitely keep? What is missing? We have three readings left before we tackle major rewrites and we’re excited to collect as many responses as possible.

If you haven’t already (or heck, even if you already have!) catch one of the last few readings on May 26 to 28. It has changed with every showing.

And if you wanted to dive right in and participate in an even more interactive way than the average show-goer; join us at the Friday, May 27th show featuring special guests Red Threads Playback Theatre. They’ll be working with the audience to use their storytelling techniques to “playback” your responses.
