In these brave performances, the audience is brought behind the veil of secrecy to see what mental illness looks like from the inside. Throughout this spring, performances are being presented in psychiatric hospitals, mental health clinics, residences and clubhouses, where audience members are invited to share their experiences with mental health issues. 

Join Village Playback Theatre and stop the stigma one story at a time.
