Event Description

Laughter is Sacred Space – Blooming Glen, PA

In Laughter is Sacred Space, actor Ted Swartz offers audiences a glimpse into his own journey.  In this warm, funny and heartbreaking show, Ted weaves stories from his childhood as a Mennonite middle child through failed business, young marriage and seminary into acting and the creation of a theater company, Ted and Lee Comedy, with friend and creative partner Lee Eshleman, a partnership which ended when Lee took his own life in 2007.

Look behind the theatrical curtain through one actor’s journey and experience Laughter is Sacred Space, coming to Blooming Glen Mennonite Church (713 Blooming Glen Rd, Blooming Glen, PA) on April 21 at 6:30 pm.

Walk with Ted as he explores the paradox of working with a comedic partner struggling with bipolar disorder, as well as the challenge of writing and performing God’s stories while experiencing the absence of God after Lee’s death.

Using monologue and multi-media, Laughter is Sacred Space is honest, funny and vulnerable, and reveals the unique journey of working in the theater and church under the shadow of a mental illness, and offers hope and humor in a way that only Ted could deliver.
