"The unbelievable journey of one man’s strength in a time of his greatest weakness."

This thought provoking performance is brilliantly written and directed by playwright and Mental Health and Addiction Specialist Colleen Taffe. It inspires audiences to be challenged by the unforeseen world of mental illness and its damaging effects of stigma, quite tangible in the black community. We follow the life of Joshua Williams; a young black man who is living the quintessential life as a wonderful family man. He is newly engaged to the love of his life and is well on his way to the top of his profession. Joshua is a man of great faith. But his faith is tested, when a devastating tragedy transpires and his once “normal” life causes him to question his own reality. In Joshua’s desperate attempt to hang on to fragments of truth he slowly begins to lose pieces of his own mind. This production taps into man’s aptitude for resilience and determination while demonstrating the courage and faith to survive and overcome the traumas of one’s life. We invite you to be inspired and engaged in a journey of hope, healing, recovery and PEACE of mind.
