Chicago Magazine: Wrestling Stigmas on Stage

I found this to be one of the most compelling pieces I’ve seen in a long time. I was especially taken by the response it created during the post-performance discussion. People were relating to the stories told onstage and making deep connections with their own lives, and the lives of loved ones. One walked away feeling great compassion for the mostly ‘invisible’ struggles so many go through every day.
