Meet Our Arlington, VA Production Team!

We're excited to announce our Arlington, VA This Is My Brave show which is scheduled for March 18th at the Gunston One Theatre. Today we learn more about the Production Team. Auditions are now open and can be scheduled using the link below!


Kate Mallow

I joined the This Is My Brave team in October as their new Program Manager and I’m excited to announce that I will be co-producing This Is My Brave Arlington with my mom. Prior to joining the Brave Team, I worked on suicide prevention and crisis hotlines as well as managing the NAMI HelpLine. I currently also work at online peer support organization, 7 Cups, as their Group Support Community Manager.

I believe that the more we can talk about mental health and share our stories, the more we can decrease the stigma that is still associated with living with a mental health condition. This Is My Brave is a unique platform that lets us share our stories in a creative way and help others know that they are not alone.

I’m looking forward to working with my mom to find Brave cast members to put on the best show we can on March 18th. I hope to see you all there!

Lynda Mallow

Lynda Mallow has worked for the Department of Defense in various positions for almost 30 years.  She currently works for The Department in Acquisition, Technology & Logistics, a field vastly different from that of mental health. In February 2017, she was catapulted into mental health awareness when her husband of 28 years suddenly and unexpectedly died by suicide. She lives in Alexandria with her dog, and in close proximity to her daughter Kate and a multitude of friends; all of whom have carried her through many difficult days. She is excited to get more involved in mental health awareness and produce This Is My Brave Arlington with her daughter.
