Playwright and performer Sara Felder developed and produced Melancholy, A Comedy, a solo performance piece written by Felder and directed by David O'Connor. Against a backdrop of Civil War-era scenes and Abraham Lincoln look-alikes, the production incorporated comedic monologues, juggling routines, and multi-media projections to confront societal discomfort around mental illness.
