The Workplace Project
Sponsored in part by Takeda Pharmaceuticals
June 5, 6, and 7 at 8 p.m. at Stage 773
Devised and directed by Associate Artistic Director Heather Bodie
This world premiere production is an exploration of mental health and the white collar workplace. With absenteeism and lack of productivity directly linked to untreated mental health issues, the stigma around mental illness significantly impacts the bottom line of corporate America. But what are we doing to address it? Four people share the stories of their struggle to manage their mental health in conjunction with their work.
Tickets on sale on April 24!
In addition to Custom Programs and Training , Erasing the Distance stages performances at local theater venues for the general public. Our productions—often world premieres—are presented in partnership with mental health professionals that offer actor training and on-site audience support and information. Every performance is followed by a moderated, interactive dialogue between the cast and audience that addresses some of the themes just seen.
