What We Do

Erasing the Distance collects true stories from people whose lives have been impacted by mental health issues, and we sculpt their actual words into monologues and scenes. Our ensemble of professional actors then brings these stories to life onstage before a live audience. Every performance is followed by a moderated, interactive dialogue with the audience that explores the play’s themes and, when appropriate, identifies mental illness signs, symptoms, recovery options, and community resources.

There are three distinct programming arms that comprise Erasing the Distance: Public Productions, Custom Programs, and Education & Training. Click on any individual link to learn more!
