Too Much Information: Mental Health Association Edition
"Yes, we're a bit reluctant to stand in front of an audience and tell our sometimes painful truth, especially about mental illness but we're going to do it anyway!"
After two packed performances at the Mental Health Association of Ulster County's Kingston offices in December and February, MHA clients who participated in a TMI Project writing workshop will take to the stage at the Rosendale Theatre on Tuesday, May 28th in celebration of Mental Health Month.
In what is a command performance of the popular show, participants will perform true monologues they wrote, based on their own experiences, over the course of the 10-week workshop last fall taught by TMI Project Executive Director Eva Tenuto and Editorial Director Sari Botton.
Come hear the truth about our transitions, challenges and moments of growth, pride and accomplishment, because sharing our stories is empowering and uplifting to both actor and audience. Storyteller and viewer alike leave the show with a new understanding of their experiences, and a new openness. We've heard on many occasions that audience members share juicy morsels in car rides home that they never would have discussed otherwise.
The mission of the MHA is to engage all people in optimal mental health by providing innovative programs and services that heal, prevent, educate and advocate. The MHA workshop was one of the first that non-profit TMI Project was able to offer through its Community Outreach Initiative. Proceeds from this event will go to MHA and The TMI Project Community Outreach initiative.
Directed by Eva Tenuto, the MHA edition of Too Much Information will be performed Tuesday, May 28th at 7 pm at the Rosendale Theatre, in Rosendale, New York. Tickets are suggested donation $15 in advance / $20 at the door.
