Anne Marie and I were thrilled to announce Boston as our first expansion city a few weeks ago. We cannot wait to bring our concept of mental health advocacy and awareness in the form of our signature production to other cities and communities across the United States. We're excited to finally reveal our second production team which will be bringing This Is My Brave to the mid-west!
When you look at Brook Easton you’d never know her hidden battle with mental illness. On her blog, Redhead Reverie, she writes about her long lineage of mental illness crossing three generations – her father, herself and her son. Brook is passionate about raising awareness and together with her team, Lisa Baum and artist Michelle Pendergrass they are excited to produce This is Your Brave in Iowa City, Iowa.
So this coming May we'll have three This Is My Brave shows - Washington, DC, Boston, and Iowa City. Each city will be auditioning and choosing their own cast of brave individuals willing to stand up on stage and share their stories of living with mental illness through music, poetry and essays.
If you are interested in producing a This Is My Brave show in your city, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about our application process.
