Event Description

Laughter is Sacred Space – Bridgewater, VA

Laughter is Sacred Space is on tour and coming to Bridgewater, VA during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month on Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at 7:30 pm for Convocation in the Carter Center at Bridgewater College, 400 E. College St, Bridgewater. Admission is free and open to the public! Sponsored by the Bridgewater College - Active Minds.

In this gritty and dramatic talk, 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.
