Description

A story of love, self-discovery, mental illness and ultimately taking responsibility for your own life. We follow three teens through therapy sessions, school days and new relationships: Gwen Bradman, the seemingly perfect girl; Jackson Powell, the boy who is stuck; and Cameron Shaw, a boy struggling with autism and a family who doesn’t understand him. And, of course, there is a Greek chorus that lightens the mood and spices things up. This new musical works to break the stigma around mental health in teens, and to empower individuals to find their inner strength.
