Event

Brian Copeland at Las Positas College February 12, 2014/7PM
Las Positas College department of Psychology presents Brian Copeland in "The Waiting Period: Laughter in the Darkness" on February 12, 2014 at 7pm in the college's Center for the Performing Arts Main Theater. Tickets: $15.

Copeland, a multi-talented actor, playwright, author and talk-show host, has basked in the glow of both public and critical acclaim for over a decade. However, like many other well-known figures, he suffers from debilitating bouts of depression. "The Waiting Period" gives an unrelenting look at a 10-day period in his life: the mandatory waiting period before he could lay his hands on a new gun with which he planned to commit suicide. Even in the throes of such tragic plans, though, his sense of humor does not desert him (how much would be appropriate to spend on the gun?), and in fact protects him from the grim reality of his intention. There is laughter in the darkness.

Interspersed with interviews with other people suffering from depression, the play also offers outsiders an insider's view, thereby expanding the audience's understanding and, hopefully, humanity.
