May is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth
DocFest2018 | September 6-16, 2018
Strawdog Theatre | Chicago, IL
It’s a new tradition for Erasing the Distance…our fall festival of new work! This year, the festival has a new format. DocFest2018 will include two fully produced shows, several short developmental monologues, and a handful of reservation-only workshops.
- Whole Child Project – This piece will be exploring whole child wellness and the way trauma and emotional well-being of both the students and the educators can play a role in the classroom. Through the stories of Chicago Public School educators and social workers we will get a glimpse into an “average” school today and the challenges they face.
- Women’s Reproductive Project – From puberty to menopause, this piece sets out to explore the way the female reproductive system affects mental health. Exploring fertility/infertility, illness, motherhood and more, these stories provide insight and compassion into the female experience.
