None Too Fragile in Akron focuses on theater therapy in a workshop setting

The holidays can be a difficult time for those dealing with the loss of loved ones or mental health issues such as suicidal thoughts.

“It’s not all elves and Santa Claus,” said David Peacock, an actor and licensed drama therapist who leads mental health workshops at the None Too Fragile Theater in Akron.

The theater, known for its Off Broadway-style black box theatre, does not have a holiday-themed play in December. It produces the Pulitzer Prize-winning American classic “‘Night, Mother” by Marsha Norman, whose two-character story focuses on suicide, from December 2-17.

Paired with the show’s heavy subject matter, None Too Fragile is offering the free “The Book of Life and Death” workshop on suicidal ideation on December 4. Peacock will lead the Theater Therapy program, which includes lunch, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the theater lobby at 732 W. Exchange St.
