We would like to thank EVERYONE who joined us for monologue readings, workshops, and performances—or a combination of all three— during DocFest2018! We are thrilled you were a part of this year’s event. 

DocFest2018, Erasing the Distance’s festival of new work, took place over the first two weekends of September. You can learn more about this year’s festival by visiting our blog

Uniformed Responders Showcase

Wondering when the next Erasing the Distance public production is? Our Uniformed Responders Showcase is November 12–14. Save the date!

Firefighters, paramedics, law enforcement officers, and military personnel can encounter traumatic events daily in the line of duty. These experiences are often met with inadequate mental health support and intensified pressure to simply “power through” by any means necessary. Join us at Chicago Dramatists on November 12–14 for a showcase of new stories from this sphere, followed by facilitated dialogue.

Your program opened up an opportunity to talk with my beloved partner about his experience with his former spouse, who was bipolar and schizophrenic, as well as sharing my own. We discovered a number of places that remain raw, and we deepened our understanding about one another’s points of view. Thank you for your work. Thank you.
