“Calling Dr. Freud”
“Calling Dr. Freud” is being created in the hopes of opening up more dialogue in our community to challenge the norms that build shame, secrecy, and the huge misunderstandings that lurk within the topic of mental illness.
This community driven production will be what is known as “devised theatre” or a collective creation, which includes real life stories, narratives, performance art, all derived from real people, real experiences, and shared works.
Director: Christine Mosere – actor, director, producer, and non-profit adviser. She is excited to be directing this piece and has a special love for devised theatre that began with her work with Angry Jellow Bubbles, a multi ethnic humorous self-written piece created by Eva Minemar with nine women who set-out to tackle issues that are specific to women. The Angry Jellow Bubble show received top-honors when it was exclusively chosen to perform for the delegates of the world at the United Nations for International Women’s Day 2001. She most recently was seen as Beatrice in “Much Ado About Nothing” and “Louise” in Free Range Human’s “Always… Patsy Cline”. Christine has been directing for over 15 years throughout NYC (where she received a “Best Director” OOBR award), Seattle, and now in her newest hometown of Frederick, MD.
Producer: MaryLynn Hinde – co-founder of SHIP of Frederick County and Community Advocate is passionate about opening dialogue on subjects that are often considered too sensitive or shaming to discuss. “Calling Dr.Freud” will be a platform of creative and compelling opportunities for raising awareness and giving voice to people whose lives have been impacted by mental illness.
