What You'll Get

Brian Copeland's landmark play about depression returns to The Marsh, where you'll see the critically acclaimed actor, playwright, author and talk-show host take center stage. Like many other well-known figures, Copeland suffers from debilitating bouts of depression. The Waiting Period gives an unrelenting look at a 10-day period in his life: the mandatory waiting period before he could lay his hands on a new gun with which he planned to commit suicide. Even in the throes of such tragic plans, though, his sense of humor does not desert him (how much would be appropriate to spend on the gun?), and, in fact, protects him from the grim reality of his intention. There is laughter in the darkness and Copeland finds it. Interspersed with interviews with other people suffering from depression, the play also offers an insider's view, thereby expanding the audience's understanding and, hopefully, humanity.
