Cooking for Grief
About the Production:
After the sudden loss of his father, Rob is forced to come to terms with his own identity and the actions that inform his role as a son, partner and friend. He returns to group therapy— after a sudden hiatus— on the heels of a fractured realization of self. As the members of the Group work together in their healing process, they find common ground in their experiences with loss, pain and addictions. Cooking for Grief explores familial relationships, toxic masculinity, and what it means to accept healing into one’s life.
Cooking for Grief had a digital staged reading with a portion of proceeds donated to Stella's Place, an organization that supports youth struggling with mental health.
Following a successful online workshop, Cooking premiered at the 2021 Vanouver Fringe Festial.
