Delia Divided follows the story of Delia, a young woman navigating adulthood while living with the realities of her co-occurring mental health disorders and criminal justice system involvement. As she strives for new friendship, Delia must contend with this chorus of mental health disorders – always present and always impacting her choices. Delia Divided is a complex human story at the intersection of mental health, criminal justice, and racism, and ultimately invites the audience to question and challenge preconceived notions of how we support each other.
Audience advisory: Please be advised that this play contains mature themes of suicide, child abandonment, drug use, and police violence.
This production is associated with Story House Ithaca's series on Breaking Our Silence: Storytelling for Mental Health. A scene from the play will be included in the performance and celebration on May 21.
