No Bad Days
December 12 2016
IN RESIDENCE: December 12, 2016
My dad was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2014, died in 2015 and we are now in 2016. This show takes you through the impossibly painful journey of saying goodbye while introducing you to his magical, eccentric spirit that never left. We will cry. But my dad once sent me to school with fake poop to “spice things up in algebra” so we will take breaks from crying as well. My dad always said that there were no bad days. So come, let’s take what would be a bad month, a bad day, and make it into a good one.

“I know it’s cliché to say I laughed and cried but I did both laugh (a lot) and cry (sobbed). The show was so emotional, hilarious and honest.” –Libby Phillips, LibbyPR.com
