I’m Ok, Are You Ok?
Molly Scullion/Philly Improv Theater (PHIT Comedy)
September 7 at 8:30pm
The Adrienne Theater MainstageMap
Molly Scullion’s “I’m Ok, Are You Ok?” is a one-woman comedy show about healing after trauma. Exploring some of the darkest times in her life, Molly Scullion brings forth a story about overcoming the past and finding strength and humor in pain.
Molly Scullion has been to therapy, and she’ll tell you all about it. In “I’m Ok, Are You Ok?”, Molly explores living and healing after trauma. With both hilarious and emotional stories, this show takes you far into the depths of just how weird our brains can be; they keep secrets from us, they explode on us, and yet, they’re always trying to protect us. The show begins with Molly sharing a past trauma, and continues by following her brain’s journey to cope with PTSD.
With tales of international travel, ice cream cakes, iPhone apps, and the dark holes of depression, this one-woman comedy show takes you on a rollercoaster of wins, losses, overcoming, falling short, progress and setbacks, all in one short hour. Note: This show has a trigger warning. Note on note: It is indeed a comedy show.
