LISTEN: Playwright/Producer Sarah Michelle Brown on The Chelsea Krost Show (first 12 and a bit minutes of the show).
I’ve been there. You’ve been there.
Stuck in a situation without an escape route. In over your head in a destructive situation. Holding on for dear life, unable to say goodbye or just. let. go.
The journey of FIRST HAND WOMAN brings you right into the heart of STUCK. It throws you down, lifts you back up, and celebrates every messy step along the way.
You’ll witness a journey of the soul as a woman slowly comes to realize the truth of her relationship through five (rather rambunctious) stages of loss. It’s a universally engaging tale of heartache and healing that takes the characters and the audience through years of hard-earned life lessons in just 90 minutes.
An outstanding life experience, not just theatre.”
- Rhett Morita, Filmmaker/Cinematographer, Toronto
It’s a celebration of the triumphs, losses, and hurts we all face. It provides a safe place to laugh about them and to cry about them. Permission to admit your own loss of innocence, your deepest fears, and your highest hopes for yourself.
FIRST HAND WOMAN is an experience that transcends the theatre. And this is just the beginning.
