This visceral and moving production featured five stories that explored the various effects of violence on mental health. Whether victim, perpetrator or witness, acts of violence leave no one unharmed. In WILL YOU STAND UP?, five men and women found their voices, confronted their pasts, and challenged their communities to action.
The lobby of the theater featured an exhibit of works by visual artists Deva Suckerman and Fernando Ramirez that explored the themes in WILL YOU STAND UP?
