A Light in Dark Places: A Collection of Plays for Hope is a play festival that seeks to bring understanding to the topic of suicide, raise awareness of the signs to look for, and to give hope to those struggling with mental illness and/or thoughts of suicide. Suicide affects too many lives, and yet it's often thought of as too dark or taboo to talk about. The stigma is slowly disappearing, but there's still much work to be done. With these plays, we want to open up discussion, build community, and reach out to remind people that we are not alone, and that it is okay to not be okay.
Help is attainable. Healing is possible. Things can get better. There is always hope.
