Playing Monopoly with God

A one woman show by Melissa Bangs

In September 2012, at 40 years old, Melissa Bangs gave birth to her beautiful daughter Adelaide. A month later, dramatically hormone depleted and sleep deprived, Melissa was admitted to the Providence Psychiatric Facilities in a complete manic state.

After nearly a month, she was sent home with a bipolar diagnosis and a Lithium prescription.

What came next was an extraordinary journey through Postpartum Psychosis and the making of Bangs' critically acclaimed one woman show Playing Monopoly With God.

Join us for a series of live performances featuring true stories, fundraising, and conversation to celebrate three decades of life-changing work by our friends at Postpartum Support International. Can’t make any of the live shows? Gather a few friends (or pillows) and stream it live online on Saturday, May 19th! (Details below.)
