"Mother Hope" is set against the backdrop of Covid-19 and national demands for a social justice reckoning. It asks: Where do we find hope amidst a pandemic? How do people with mental illness cope during this time? Will movements like Black Lives Matter, Say Her Name, The Resistance Movement and the MMIW crisis be remembered post Covid-19? What happens when we politicize trauma? Presented in collaboration with Girl Be Heard, a non-profit theatre company that brings global issues affecting girls center stage by empowering young women to tell their stories. Written and directed by Mariah Ayscue.
