Event Description

Laughter is Sacred Space – Wichita, KS

Laughter is Sacred Space is coming to Wichita, KS on Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 6:30 pm at Newman University, 3100 McCormick, Wichita, KS 67213. Admission is free and is open to the public! Following the show there will be a candlelight ceremony in honor of Mental Illness Awareness Month. Sponsored by NAMI Wichita.

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.
