An innovative Vancouver theatre company has been tackling the issue of mental health with its latest production, maladjusted. The interactive play is created and performed by patients with mental health issues and caregivers, and gives the audience a chance to weigh in on how the stories told will end. David Diamond, artistic director of Theatre for Living, says everyone involved in the production has experienced struggles with the “mechanization of the health system.” The 32-year-old theatre company has deep ties with mental health organizations and throughout the years has realized that the system was getting harder to deal with over time.
