THIS ISN'T HELPING Returns To Port Jefferson On Today
Storyteller, writer, performer, and creative arts therapist Jude Treder-Wolff's critically acclaimed solo-show, This Isn't Helping, returns to the The Performing Arts Studio in Port Jefferson, Long Island on Saturday, May 12 at 7 pm. This Isn't Helping is written and performed by Treder-Wolff and features original songs written by Treder-Wolff and Wells Hanley. The comedy has been developed through coaching with Kevin Allison (RISK! podcast/show creator and The State/MTV).
This Isn't Helping, is a true, comedic account of a long-time psychotherapist's struggle against burn-out and the fascinating characters who thought they could help: The highly opinionated life coach, the evangelizing corporate trainer, the New Age healer who was either the most relaxed person you could ever meet or completely high.
If you have ever found yourself so emotionally exhausted you could not do the thing you love the most, if you wonder whether what we do to make the world better really matters, this show just might help. This Isn't Helping was selected for the 2017 Speak Up! Rise Up! Storytelling Festival and performed at the Off-Broadway Connelly Theater in NYC, The Whitefire Solo Theatre Festival in Sherman Oaks, CA, The Tank in NYC, and The Performing Arts Studio in Port Jefferson, NY.
The performance takes place at the Performing Arts Studio, 224 E. Main Street, Port Jefferson, New York 11777. Tickets are $15 online, $20 at the door (cash only), and are available at www.mostlytruethings.com
