DVC Equity Speaker Series:

Brian Copeland

"The Waiting Period"

Wednesday, November 16, 11 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.

Performing Arts Center

This show is an unrelenting look at a ten-day period in Copeland’s life—the mandatory waiting period before he could lay his hands on the newly purchased gun with which he planned to take his own life. Even in the midst of this tragedy, however, his wonderful sense of the comedy of life does not desert him. Copeland hopes this very personal and ultimately redemptive story will reach people who struggle with depression—often called the last stigmatized disease—as well as their families and loved ones.
