Life After Death: Stories of those who Survived Grief
Cola McGill Productions
Saturday, January 16, 2016 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium
These mini sketches all explore the many different stages of grief through both comedy and dramatic lenses. Each sketch explores the expectations of what people go through when they are trying to move past death. Death doesn’t always mean that someone has died. We discuss the ending of relationships and the loss of jobs, as other forms of grief. There are 10 stories that are expressed through monologues, choreopoems, scenes. Each of the sketches deals with an aspect of different stages of grief: 1. Denial/ isolation 2. Anger 3. Bargaining 4. Depression 5. Acceptance, touching on matters such as using time wisely, questioning why has this happened, good memories of the person, being bitter, angry, or simply how to help others who have experienced loss. The recurring theme throughout the piece is that grief can be a tool of empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.
The goal for this production is to entertain, educate on how to identify the different stages of grief to help others, and to ignite conversations about grief that we as a society are not having.
