Rogue Festival 2016: Is Your Therapist Near A Bakery?

by Susan Gill

Is Your Therapist Near A Bakery? started out as a funny story I told at a birthday roast for my son on his 24th birthday. Considering that my father was a serial suicide attempter, who “had the urge, but not the talent for suicide,” my sister had a borderline personality that always wandered over the border, and my brother’s story is too dark to tell until the end of the show, the humor throughout the piece is surprising and welcomed. The audience cries a little knowing a laugh will arrive in the next minute.
