Michael Mack returns with his moving, often humorous, multi-character, one-man show of a family navigating mother's schizophrenia and eventual recovery. Called by the Boston Globe "Transcendent art that reaches out with unblinking honesty." See the award-winning show about love and schizophrenia.
Michael Mack was a little boy when his mother was first diagnosed with schizophrenia -- becoming convinced that she was the Virgin Mary.
One in every five families faces a major mental illness, and the stunning transformation of a loved one can strike a child mute. But Michael Mack found his voice, and he shares it with others in his feature-length solo play Hearing Voices, Speaking in Tongues.
Over a decade in creation, Mack's multi-character one-man show is a lyric memoir of one family navigating a life-changing reality. Mack charts his mother's odyssey through state hospitals, halfway houses, jails, and homelessness until she finds recovery through an unexpected grace. Exploring the shadowy landscape between psychosis and religious illumination, Hearing Voices, Speaking in Tongues is one family's journey of deliverance.
