Normal Stories

Spread the love

Arts After Hours will bring the Tony and Pulitzer-Prize winning family drama Next to Normal to the LynnArts Black Box Theatre June 1st through June 17th.

In advance of the show, Arts After Hours is collecting stories about mental illness and its impacts on daily family life to share on a blog they’re calling, Normal Stories. The first story is up.

We have asked patrons, artists, friends, and family to share their stories, their diagnosis, and the impact it has had on their daily and family life. So many of you have shared and we now are ready to begin our conversation. Here is the first of a series of many stories we will share in the coming weeks. Laura’s story is a great starting point for us. She is also the amazing volunteer who has collected many of your stories to get them ready for this blog. A true advocate and champion of getting these stories heard and ever hopeful that we can crush the stigma and begin talking more openly about mental illness.
