By Kathryn Schultz Miller.
Cast: 2m., 2w. You Don't See Me tackles the subject of death in the same way children naturally resolve hard issues—through creative play. Stephanie, whose brother has died, finds her way through it by creating a fantasy in which her brother appears, portrayed in mime. He sticks with her and helps her prepare for the science fair until she is ready to accept his loss, begins to feel the grief, and finds renewed confidence in herself to go on living without him. Performed for hundreds of elementary school audiences by ArtReach Touring Theatre, You Don't See Me brings both laughter and tears. It entertains and enlightens—tenderly. Bare stage w/props. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
