Brian Copeland: The Waiting Period

From the Best of the SF Solo Series, producer Brian Copeland leads off with his courageous and comic tale of redemption

This show is an unrelenting look at a ten-day period in Brian Copeland‘s life—the mandatory ten-day waiting period before he could lay his hands on the newly purchased gun with which he planned to take his own life.

Even in the midst of this tragedy, however, his wonderful sense of the comedy of life does not desert him (how much should he spend on the gun?), indeed serves him insidiously well as a buffer against the grim reality of his intention.

Copeland hopes this very personal, and ultimately redemptive, story will reach people who struggle with depression—often called the last stigmatized disease—as well as their families and loved ones.

Interspersed with interviews with other sufferers, the play also offers outsiders an insider’s view, thereby expanding our understanding and, hopefully, our humanity.

Winner, 2015 Theater Bay Area Award for Outstanding Production of a Solo Play

“As astonishingly funny as it is brutally honest—and all of it is admirably courageous, urgent and yet charmingly told.”
—Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

“It’s a play I’d strongly recommend to anyone who is now or has ever been depressed or who knows someone in that situation. But honestly, it’s such a strong piece that I’d recommend it just as heartily to anyone who’s ever been human.”
—Sam Hurwitt, The Idiolect
