How to Heal the Hurt By Hating Opens June 25

Red Door ensemble will premier their adaptation of Anita Liberty's How to Heal the Hurt By Hating. The production will presented at Public Space One and will run for three weekends.

"Anita Liberty" is the brainchild of comedienne Suzanne Weber and graphic artist Michael Calleia. The two penned the 1998 book "How to Heal the Hurt By Hating," in which Anita uses poetry to vent her frustration with her ex-boyfriend Mitchell. The book became a hit, spawning a short film, live readings, and two more books. Now Red Door is adapting the work as a play.

“I have been inspired by the writing of Anita Liberty for over ten years now," says director Kerry Kieler. "Red Door Ensemble is happy to have this opportunity to produce our very first adaptation.” The show will feature three actresses portraying "different aspects of one character" and will also incorporate some original poems created by Red Door's ensemble.

How to Heal the Hurt By Hating runs June 25 – July 10th, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm. Tickets are $10.
