Once upon a time, Lori Lane Murphy met me online… I was stoked to be a part of her All In Our Heads storytelling event at The Paddock a while ago, and wouldn’t you know it – Lori was even cooler in person. I even met her husband Paul who I immediately wanted to be his sister!
Fastforward past coffee chats and more storytelling events to when Lori brings this great idea of a mental health podcast that we should make together. Of course I am game! We create Stories Like Crazy We have a few episodes ready to drop for #MHW17 Mental Health Week May 1-7, but we don’t stop there…
We are teaming up to bring our one-woman shows about our true life stories dealing with mental health issues in our lives. Partial proceeds will go to CHMA’s #GETLOUD campaign for this year’s #MHW17
Great news! My play Everything But the Cat… a one-woman show dealing with bereavement and suicide is going to be at the Soulo Festival of solo shows! May 25th, 7 pm at The Red Sandcastle Theatre in Leslieville.
I have been working with Jason Martorino on some new edits to the projections and to the script itself – after hearing from two great audiences give great feedback on what they wanted from the project.
I’m breaking my brain trying to figure out film and sound editing, along with projection programming – “Damnit Kirk, I’m an actor not an editor!” (nerd)
But at the end of the day I am excited to push myself to making this the best performance I can to spread suicide awareness and prevention.
