A Little Bit Not Normal

Written and performed by Arlene Malinowski

With her trademark humor, Arlene Malinowski confronts her personal demon - depression. A Little Bit Not Normal is a poignant life-affirming journey from mental illness to recovery, and the process of naming it, claiming it, and standing to be counted.

Where Did We Sit on the Bus?

Written and performed by Brian Quijada

During a lesson on the Civil Rights movement, a Latino boy raises his hand to ask, "Where did we sit on the bus?" and his teacher can't answer. Brian Quijada examines what it means to be a Latino through the eyes of a child, turned teenager, turned adult.
