Christion Ty Edwards: “The Sad Life Of A Happy Man”

Event Type
Saturday, March 9, 7:00 pm

Atlas Performing Arts Center
1333 H Street NE
Washington, DC
United States

This piece peels back the facade of showmanship and personifies what happens when a man confronts the fractured parts of himself to realize his purpose for living. When he tries to uncover this purpose, he is tossed into the throws of depression, and suicidal ideation, and must figure out if it’s all worth it before the clock runs out. A storyteller broken into pieces. If you had the chance to peer inside the mind of an artist on the brink of disaster… would you do it?

CONTENT NOTE: Possibly disturbing material that includes suicide, self-hatred, depression, some F-bombs, and other colorful language. Ages 13+.
