Dual Diagnosis


Dual Diagnosis:

A collaboration between NWNMC and Profile Theatre.

NWNMC and Profile Theatre are partnering to give clinicians, caregivers, patients and artists a joint performance stage. Profile Theatre Project’s (Un)Conditional, a play written and performed by people living with chronic illnesses and their caregivers, opens February 9th. In collaboration with the project, NWNMC and Profile will host DUAL DIAGNOSIS, a joint performance of stories on Saturday, February 16th at 2:00 pm. Writers will read their pieces, and then there will be an opportunity for the audience to write, inspired by the stories they just heard, which will be immediately performed by Profile’s actors.

Share your work!

We want to feature your writing at our performance! We’re looking for poetry, memoir, short fiction, short creative non-fiction, essays, monologues, and beyond from one of our workshops, or a piece inspired by your experience as a health care provider, caregiver, family member or patient, by Friday, January 11th.

If your piece isn’t quite to your satisfaction, indicate on the form that you’re open to feedback to hone your piece for the stage. We are so happy to gently support your creative process, and empower you to feel comfortable on stage sharing your story with your community.
