Straight On Till Morning (Education Arts Canada)
In development for 2020 school tour
(Book Writer & Director)
Created by Juno award-winning composers, Judy & David Gershon, and by playwright/director Ali Joy Richardson, under the guidance of a team of mental health professionals.
"It’s the end of the school year: summer’s just around the corner, and Riley K. is all set to shine in the starring role of her school’s production of Peter Pan. But right when Riley should be taking flight, she finds herself feeling lower and lower. Turning to her phone, social media and other screens to escape her feelings, she discovers avoiding them only pulls her further down. Straight On Till Morning is the story of one preteen girl’s journey with depression and what it means to search for the light in the darkness."
Part of Education Arts Canada’s One Deep Breath series of touring musicals about mental health for pre-teen audiences.
