JLKC - SKITZophrenia

JD Lawrence’s SKITZophrenia is a new ninety-minute one-man show with over 70 characters written and performed by Two-Time Telly Award Winner, writer and director JD Lawrence. Lawrence is also the creator and star of Bravo’s Your Husband Is Cheating On Us and BET’s The Clean Up Woman. Lawrence’s performance in SKITZophrenia made history when it trumped the Guinness World Records title in June 2019. Inspired by actual events, Lawrence calls the show a “Therapeutic Dramedy Memoir”. The show takes place in Amityville, New York. (Yes, that Amityville and minutes from the infamous house.) The show is centered around Lawrence after the loss of his mother. In order to help get through his depression, his therapist recommends he let go of the family home where he grew up. As he begins to pack he comes across memorabilia that now triggers his schizophrenia as the inquisitive and rambunctious seven-year-old nicknamed Ace and his clingy best friend who just happens to be his shadow. The show deftly tackles important mental health topics including schizophrenia, depression, PTSD, and adverse childhood experiences. The NAACP Legacy Award Recipient’s performance is an absolute must see. JD Lawrence’s SKITZophrenia the musical, no the comedy, it’s a drama… it’s healing.
