Bedlam
Your contribution helps to fund current and future productions, as well as further our developing Veterans Outreach programming. Bedlam is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. All donations are tax deductible.

Committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience, Bedlam creates works of theatre that reinvigorate traditional forms in a flexible, raw space, collapsing aesthetic distance and bringing its viewers into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of life. In this new, fresh, active environment storytelling becomes paramount and the result is a kinetic experience of shared empathy.
Veteran Outreach
Bedlam offers a FREE ongoing acting class for Veterans on Monday evenings dedicated to the exploration of William Shakespeare’s plays. The class is welcome to bring in material of their choice to work on for auditions and performances. Participants are also invited to share their work in showcase presentations, and participate in an ongoing reading series. The class is open to actors of all levels of experience as well as “non-actors.” Veterans only.

Saint Joan Benefit
BEDLAM Presents
a Benefit Performance
of SAINT JOAN
by George Bernard Shaw
directed by Eric Tucker
Featuring Aundria Brown, Edmund Lewis, Sam Massaro & Eric Tucker
A.R.T/NY Mezzanine Theater
502 West 53rd Street, NYC
Wednesday, October 17th 7PM

$100 per person

All Proceeds will go to help Aundria Brown (who played Saint Joan on Bedlam's national tour) and her family as they cope with her mother's ALS.


A Note From Dria:
My mother, Shryll Brown is a mother, wife, sister, friend and beloved community leader in (MY) hometown of Blair, South Carolina. She was diagnosed with ALS a year and a half ago and has been battling the disease ever since. It has been and continues to be a tough fight, but she persists.

My mom is currently paralyzed from the neck down, hasn’t spoken in a year because of her ventilator and is fed through a peg tube. She requires round the clock care and constant supervision and my dad, David, is her sole caregiver at the moment. At the end of September my mom was hospitalized due to an infection and is finally home and stable adjusting to yet another new phase of life with ALS.

My family needs to hire an in-home nurse to relieve the full weight of care taking off of my dad's shoulders and allow him to rest and take care of himself too. Rest would help him be more present for my mom and not overwhelmed 24 hours a day.

My father started renovating the house a few months before she was diagnosed. These projects have remained at a stand still as the level of care my mom needed rose and medical expenses became greater.

The money we raise will go towards supplies, labor + , and a minimal construction crew to help a team of volunteers.

Some of the money will also go to giving my parents some financial relief from medical expenses. Hospital stays, incontinence supplies, respiratory equipment for the ventilator, medications that are not covered by insurance and formula for the peg tube total $1,000+. It takes a tremendous amount of money to keep up with the demands of her condition.

I admire my father so much. He is doing an amazing job taking care of my mother. They are both such loving, caring, selfless human beings and would never ask for the support they deserve. In times like these community support is more important than ever. It is important to show people you love them through actions, not just words.

My family needs your help. Please consider coming to see our show, your contribution will help them.
