Alcoholism. Depression. Suicide. Not the family footsteps in which Vivian wanted to follow. When they threatened to be the ones she was destined for, she took action. Bending time and space, she created a future and a truth all her own. Discovery and surrender, juxtaposed with the comedy of human nature, fill this play with pathos, humor and adventure. Director: Lee Kitts. Music Supervisor: John Dillon. Stage Manager: Jo Johnson. Lighting Design: Karen Perlow. Costume & Set: Karen Anselm. Show image by Cyd Gallery. Recommended for: adults only (not suitable for children), theatre community, Irish Americans, poetry and magical realism enthusiasts, historians, suicide prevention and recovery communities. Links: show, artist, twitter, instagram.
