10/19: St. Louis Storytelling Festival presents SNAP!
$10 General Admission
October 19, 2017
The one woman show, SNAP!, written and performed by storyteller, author, and Stories-In-Health consultant Regi Carpenter, is Regi’s true story of a sixteen year old girl’s descent into mental illness, her commitment to a state mental hospital and her journey back to reality and freedom. Mental illness is, in many ways, a taboo topic. Personal admission of hospitalization is still covered in secrecy, rarely treated as directly and honestly as in “SNAP!”. Carpenter’s short version of Snap! won her the 2012 Boston StorySlam for best of the year. The show is appropriate for teens and adults.
This performance of SNAP! precedes Regi’s full-day, hands-on workshop on Friday, Oct. 20 titled “The Use of Storytelling in Clinical Care”. Designed for social workers, licensed health care practitioners, mental health practitioners, caregivers, educators, or anybody interested in utilizing storytelling techniques in clinical care settings. CE/PD credit is available for the workshop, more details at http://regicarpenter.com/snap/.
