"Type 2- A Tragic Comedy" is a sensitive, realistic portrayal of the highs and lows of bipolar disorder. The show features the re-teaming of comic genius Michelle Mainwaring, who won WODL Best Actress award for her dark, dramatic portrayal of Annie Wilkes in "Misery" and her partner in that production Jason Gale who was nominated for best actor.

Gale wrote the script, utilizing his research and personal battle with the illness. If you know or think you know someone who is bipolar, you must see this show.

'Type 2 - A Tragic Comedy' is for a mature audience only as it is brutally honest and pulls no punches from either viewpoint. The story chronicles the career of a bipolar stand up comic and her journey on and off prescribed medications and how it affects her life and her husbands as well.
