Description

LAUGHTER IS SACRED SPACE: Suicide in no joke. But in this gritty and dramatic show, Ted Swartz walks you through his relationship with friend and business partner, Lee Eshleman, who took his own life in 2007. Ted explores the paradox of working with a comedic partner struggling with bipolar disorder, as well as the challenge of writing and performing stories about God while experiencing the absence of God after Lee’s death.

Using multi-media and his twenty years of storytelling experience, Laughter is Sacred Space is honest, funny and vulnerable, and reveals the unique journey of working as a comedic actor under the shadow of a mental illness, and offers hope and humor in a way that only Ted could deliver.

This theater experience and conversation is for faith leaders, care-givers, and families of every kind, denomination, house of worship, and perspecitve. The struggles and strains of care-giving and professional life are real. For this year focused on self-care and balance, the Mental Health Faith Council is providing education, support and resources in an effort to reduce the stigma of mental illness, as well as, increase the health and well-being of those in the helping, faith professions who face issues of personal, family and congregational mental health on a regular basis.
