Cast: Victoria Maxwell
CRAZY FOR LIFE is a 'tour de force' one-woman show of Victoria Maxwell's roller-coaster ride with bipolar disorder and psychosis. A brave, funny, and compelling look at experiencing, surviving, and coming to terms with mental illness. Actor/writer/educator Victoria Maxwell BFA, BPP* (*Bachelor of Fine Arts/Bi-Polar Princess") takes us 'round the bend, and back again; from meditation groups to hospital psych wards, from black depressions to manic highs and psychedelic psychoses.
CRAZY FOR LIFE both entertains and educates, exploding stigmas and revealing glimpses of one face of psychiatric illness. But at its essence, the play is a celebration of the richness of life, the strength of the human spirit and the power of the human heart.
