Playwrights of Denton will meet Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 7 pm. We have a new playwright who needs about 7 readers to do the play justice--please email thedctteam@campustheatre if you can help us out. Here's a synopsis and character descriptions:
Unbalanced by Aaron Zilbermann


After a disturbing suicide attempt, Ezra finds himself locked in the psychiatric ward of a hospital.  Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, his psychiatrist at the facility recommends a treatment of electroconvulsive therapy to help him break free from the shackles of his depression.  Ezra struggles through the memory loss, disorientation, the alienation of his wife and daughters, and his internal struggles toward recovery.


EZRA – A male patient in his early thirties. 

DR. AMIN – A female psychiatrist in her late thirties.

SARAH – A female in her early thirties.  EZRA’s wife.

SAUL – A male therapist in his early forties.

TONI – A trans (MTF) patient in her late thirties

SONIA – A nineteen year-old female patient.
