Back by popular demand, playwright Sibyl Renaye revives her award-winning autobiographical stage play, This Is Why I Whisper, at Symphony Space’s Pete Jay Sharp Theatre, 2537 Broadway at 95th Street for two special showings Saturday, June 29, 2013 @ 2pm and & 7:30pm.Jonathan Valdez returns as director with Rasheda Crockett, Celine Justice, Catherine Cushenberry, Whitney Marchelle and Sam Lasko join original cast members, Michael Gilbert, Keith H. Henley, Maurice A. Tucker, and Eugene Daniels. 

WHISPER tells the story of man’s battle with schizophrenia and the feelings of guilt, fear, and shame the ordeal fosters in his family. Seen through the eyes of his sisters, struggling to honor the last wish of their mother, WHISPER, tells in heart-breaking detail of the trials a family must endure when one of its members is mentally ill.

The gripping drama laced with humor is based on the playwright’s own brother’s condition and the uphill battle she and her sisters were forced to bear. The play is Ms. Renaye’s attempt to make sense out of the bitterness, anger, and misguided feelings of embarrassment she and her siblings felt.

These special performances are designed to create further awareness for mental illness.
