World Premiere by Sarasvati Productions
#BreakingThrough #Winnipeg #mentalhealth
“After two years of work gathering stories, writing, receiving feedback, rewriting and testing the material we are extremely excited to share the culmination of our Mental Health is Everyone’s Health project with the world premiere of Breaking Through by Hope McIntyre and Cairn Moore.
“The stories of five individuals struggling with mental health issues interweave in this new play. The project saw writers McIntyre and Moore team up with Artists in Health Care, Red Threads Playback Theatre and the Selkirk Mental Health Centre as well as working with multiple community organizations and the public. The resulting play is an exploration of mental illness grounded in real experience.
“We have assembled a stellar artistic team under director Kevin Klassen, including (video/sound). The Winnipeg cast is Elena Anciro, Dorothy Carroll, Richie Diggs, Marsha Knight, Harry Nelken, Spenser Payne and Josh Ranville.”
