I Am Worthy; a comedy for Suicide Prevention

Suicide is a horrific event that has affected many people. And opening up a conversation about it can be just as horrific. Unless the conversation starts with Emerson Theater Collaborative's newest play: I Am Worthy- The Gospel according to Josh.

I Am Worthy Project - The Gospel According to Josh

This one man show  encompasses a 30 character, 7 song show, about a small town boy who follows his dreams to Hollywood despite the tempestuous relationship with his pious father. Along the way he must navigate his religious upbringing, an escape to New York, his starring roles in two reality TV shows, and ultimately his father's tragic suicide. Discussion will follow each performance.

There will be performances on

Friday April 5 from 7pm-9pm
Saturday April 6 from 7pm-9pm
Sunday April 7th from 4pm-7pm

The performances will be held at
Union Baptist Church, 119 High Street, Mystic CT 06355

I have worked with ETC (Emerson Theater Collaborative) in the past as their set designer. They are a great little theater group with big dreams. They work to produce new plays that without their help may never have had the chance to be produced. They really work to get the community involved and to pick pieces that share an important message.  To see more about what ETC  is all about, check out their website at
