In Deana Barone’s solo concoction, she tells a non-linear, experimental, partially improvisational, and interactive story, breaking conventions and the fourth wall. She inhabits eccentric and poignant characters and explores growing up as a first-generation American in the Midwest educated in a religious enclave, with a mentally ill sister, an adorable mother, a sick brother, and a guru-like father who believes the bible is propaganda.

Online reviews from MetaFam’s premiere at the Whitefire Theatre SoloFest 2016:

The medicine you need!

This show... "... is soul medicine, powerful and healing.... it assaults our comfort with a fierceness that would make Antonin Artaud and Berthold Brecht proud.” -Mark Hein "... is the beautiful medicine you need.” – Scathach Cotter

Jessie's Messy Mind

A "crazy" solo show that makes a mental difference. Jessie is an artist with schizo-affective whose show is a refreshing, humorous look into the heart of mental difference. You'll either leave enlightened or simply lightened up!
