Burton and Hofmeister wrote The Manic Monologues in the wake of Burton’s 2017 bipolar diagnosis while a doctoral student at Stanford University.  The play brings to life incredible stories — stories that will challenge and inform your ideas about what it means to be touched by a mental health condition.  These true, lived experiences come from diverse and resilient people living across the world.  These brave individuals have things to say about struggle and pain, but also triumph and joy.  They are moving.  They are human.  And they are not ashamed.

“The Manic Monologues has been on our short list for some time, and the stars have finally aligned to share this important and impactful piece with our audiences,” said Sharman Altshuler, Producer & Artistic Director for Moonbox Productions.  “The Studio at Arrow Street Arts will provide the perfect space to hear these stories, and to connect with each other after each performance in our post-show talkbacks.  This is a project unlike any other we have done at Moonbox, and we are deeply grateful for the opportunity,” said Altshuler.
