maladjusted BC/Alberta 2015 Tour

We’re excited to announce that in response to numerous requests and great audience feedback to maladjusted, we will remount and tour the project January to March 2015!

maladjusted was created and performed by mental health patients and caregivers. The play explores the mechanization of the mental health system, and how stigmatization of mental health issues happens inside the system itself. The audience-interactive production asks questions about how we can create more human-centered care.

The project will be presented in up to 33 communities throughout BC and Alberta and then perform back in Vancouver for 7 final shows.

“maladjusted is brilliant, ground-breaking theatre. The interactive element of the show empowers the audience in a way that other forms of theatre cannot.” Cassandra Freeman

“To all of you, actors and everybody involved, maladjusted was remarkable, eye-opening (along with all other senses).” David Usher, MD, PhD

“The passion and pain and hope for change in maladjusted was palpable and the real issues were held up and examined. There was no feel of a documentary or lecture though, just real emotions, real stories inspired by real people. That’s unique, important and powerful theatre.”
David C. Jones, The Charlebois Post – Canada

If you would like to bring maladjusted to your community (BC/Alberta) get in touch! Please contact Liza Lindgren at<> or call our office at 1.604.871.0508.
