Event Description

Laughter is Sacred Space: Human Faces Tour – Tucson, AZ

Laughter is Sacred Space is on tour and coming to Tucson, AZ for Mental Health Awareness month on Sunday, April 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm at Shalom Mennonite Fellowship, 6044 E 30th St, Tucson, AZ. Admission is free and open to the public!

This show is part of The Human Face Tour, which includes partnership with local mental health agencies and the opportunity for audience members to share their own story through portrait photographs by Steven Stauffer following the show, and submitting their own stories of journey with mental illness.

In this gritty and dramatic play, Ted Swartz walks us 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.
