Theatre for Living’s critically acclaimed maladjusted is playing in Vancouver for 9 shows at the Firehall Theatre, March 20-28th, with two matinees at 2pm on March 22 and 26th. Audiences are calling it a “thought provoking, gut wrenching, funny, sad and mind-broadening” piece of interactive theatre.
maladjusted engages audiences with powerful images and authentic voices weaving together three very personal narratives: A young teenager struggling with sadness over her friend’s suicide is misdiagnosed by her doctor; a young homeless man who is legitimately taking prescription meds gets thrown into dangerous circumstances by social workers, who are from within a mechanizing system, trying their best to help him; and finally, there is all of us, unable to adjust to the needs of a maladjusted mental health sector, who become potential agents for change.
maladjusted takes us on an intimate journey, builds up to a breathtaking crisis and then STOPS. Next, at this heightened moment of suspense, we are invited to engage with the characters from a safe, entertaining and creative space where anything is possible!
Throughout the touring process, communities will be producing Community Action Reports, which will contain policy recommendations for stake holders and decision makers. We hope that the conversations that happen during maladjusted will extend as far as possible!
