A LITTLE BIT NOT NORMAL
Written and Performed by Arlene Malinowski
Directed by Lisa Portes
The autobiographical solo performance A Little Bit Not Normal revolves around a family secret that was kept silent for over six decades. With her trademark humor, Arlene Malinowski confronts her personal demon – depression. She explores the shame and secrecy that comes from mental illness, and the stigma that is attached to it. 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.
