The Grief Party

Imagine that each phase of grief exists in the different rooms of a house; anger is in the kitchen popping out of the fridge, acceptance is on a bookshelf in the living room, and depression is in the closet with the Grief Monster.

 

The Grief Party is a short film based on the one woman show, Chrysalis, written and performed by Evangeline Crittenden. I was attracted to the surrealist devices in the interactive play,  and in my adaptation the live audience becomes the camera and the stage is her private world inside her home.

 The Grief Party seeks to entertain and prepare those who have not experienced loss and hold hands with those who have.
