ALRIGHT: Solving the Problem of Living

Written and performed by Nisha Coleman
Directed by Stephen Maclean Rogers

Music and sound design by Pat McMaster


ALRIGHT: Solving the Problem of Living was filmed entirely in an oak tree during the summer, fall and winter of 2020. 

This solo storytelling show takes you on exhilarating, nail-biting and heart-wrenching adventures. In her signature animated, humorous storytelling style, Coleman welcomes you to her world in which she cleans feces-filled bedpans, is rescued by a Westley from The Princess Bride, and is locked in the Madrid train station.


She also reveals her darkest days, all in the spirit of "solving the problem of living" and learning to be alright with being alive. 

Content Warning: This show deals with themes of suicide, substance abuse and mental illness. Please make sure you have the necessary supports in place if you are sensitive to these subjects.
