“All The Feels, a mental health variety show, is Wednesday, May 29th at Union Stage”

From an email:

“May is mental health awareness month, but most of us aren’t aware just how many of us struggles. Hearing that 1 in 5 of us has a mental health challenge isn’t as meaningful as hearing the humans facing those challenges.

That’s the point of All The Feels, a mental health variety show, that is next Wednesday, May 29th at Union Stage. Ten local performers will tell stories, do stand up comedy, share poetry and sing about their experiences with challenges from depression and bipolar, to substance abuse and suicide.

Among the performers, Mikael Johnson, a long time DC actor with so many diagnoses and prescriptions he’s stopped keeping track, shares his experience of finding a therapist who laughs with him. Gabrielle Zwi, an 18-year-old singer-songwriter, shares her music about struggling with labels and identity and how they overlap with mental health. And Joani Peacock, an Episcopal priest, shares about writing sermons through a manic episode until a car accident forced a reality check.

The goal of the show is to encourage people to feel normal and less alone, the first steps to feeling better. Come hear their stories and more. For details and tickets, check out
