When mental illness comes home, the entire family has special needs.
New York Writer/Actress Anne Pasquale, originally from Rhode Island, has written a play to capture her experience living with her brother Bob and his mental illness. The one woman show "promises to shed light on the lives of folks with disabilities and those who love them."
In "BOB: Blessed Be the Dysfunction That Binds" Anne invites you to meet her special needs brother, Bob, and her family. Share in the craziness, laughter, tears and triumphs that highlight this coming of age journey.
Playing 20 different characters in her 90-minute solo show, playwright and performer Anne Pasquale tells the hilarious and heartbreaking story of growing up in Rhode Island when her family is not quite the same as everyone else's. For everyone who has wondered at their own or anyone else's sanity, BOB reminds us that we can always acquire the tools to see us through.
Tickets for the event are normally $15, but Anne is waiving fees for anyone in the fields of mental health and human services. To make a reservation, call 401-490-9475. Seating is extremely limited.
