Musical Chairs: Levin, Sheila
Musical Chairs explores one family´s history of mental health diagnoses and searches to define the cusp between a ´90s working-class childhood and the trouble of adapting to a comfortable life in the suburbs. In order to understand her restlessness, Jennifer reflects on years of strip-dancing, alcoholism and estrangement. Inspired by the least likely source, the family she left behind, Jennifer struggles toward reconciliation. This is a story about identity, class, family ties, and the elusive nature of mental illness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laura Jennings.
