4 1/2 (g)noble truths

Pi Provocateurs presents 4 1/2 (ig)noble truths from April 25-27!

 

Let’s pretend for a second that we’re OK. What does that feel like? A lot of things are not OK with Thomas but he's got a ten-pound sledge hammer and is pretty sure that could solve at least one of his problems. This is a show that he wrote. Because we are walking around polishing silverware or running schools or arresting jaywalkers, and dying all the time and no one is saying anything. We aren’t talking because we don’t have words. Or we have those words but to say them could be worse.

If he howls will you howl back? If we howl together will we be healed?

Thomas McKechnie’s 4 1⁄2 (ig)noble truths is a deeply personal attempt to articulate his experience living with clinical depression. Framed as a matter-of-fact lecture, when this method falls short Thomas makes use of objects, poetry, sound, and violent action to offer 4 1/2 totally useful pieces of advice for battling depression.

As part of Pi's Close Encounters Series, the bar will be open after each show and Thomas will be joined by a special guest moderator for a conversation. We hope you can join us.

Written and performed by Thomas McKechnie
