Comedian and certified insane person JD Derbyshire turns the audience into a mental health review board to help determine her current state of sanity. Jointhis irreverent fun of JD’s hilarious and heart-aching journey through the mental health system. Together, we grapple with hefty questions like: how do we define“crazy” and who gets to decide? In this case: you do.

Mental health issues have come out of the closet recently, though there still is much stigma attached. Employing an audacious, articulate writing style, JD creates candid, compelling material about discovering her need for vigilant self-care. Her background as a trail blazing,queer, female stand-up comedian and her vast experience as a playwright-performer contributes to making Certified a rich and unique work.
