BRUNSWICK – The Sweetser Learning and Recovery Center in collaboration with The Theater Project will present an informal theater piece called “Telling Our Stories” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, at The Theater Project, 14 School St.

“Telling Our Stories” is a theatrical collage of ideas, experiences, feelings and personal stories about living with and recovering from mental illnesses. The cast is made up of members of the Sweetser Peer Center, professional actors from The Theater Project and community theater actors. Some tell their own stories and others relate the stories of others.

“Telling Our Stories” is the result of theater workshops held at the Peer Center in Brunswick, facilitated by Frank Wicks, in which participants created stories and short theater pieces about struggling with, surviving and recovering from mental illnesses. The purpose of the performance is to help the public come to a greater understanding and acceptance of mental illnesses, and reduce stigma, according .
