Winner of the Theater Bay Area Award for Outstanding Production of a Solo Play in 2019, this deeply moving and surprisingly funny work outlines Copeland’s own struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts. With this brave and original production Copeland is breaking down barriers for those who may be struggling with depression themselves. Featuring poignant and riveting insights, the solo show written by Copeland and directed by David Ford provides an unrelenting look at a key turning point in Copeland’s life—the mandatory ten-day waiting period before he could lay his hands on the newly purchased gun with which he planned to take his own life. Laced with surprisingly funny moments that serve as a buffer against the grim reality of his intentions, Copeland hopes this very personal and ultimately redemptive story will reach people who struggle with depression—often called the last stigmatized disease—as well as their families and loved ones.
