Fadeaway Girl

An autobiographical story of one woman’s experience with mental illness

from Rachel Petrie (St. Paul, MN)

Returning Participant

Primary Lineup – Solo Performance (Dramedy, Mental Health Themes, Storytelling)

Show Description

Fadeaway Girl is the autobiographical story of how one woman comes to terms with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder not once, but twice. Through a narrative that is both personal and universal, Rachel sheds light on the still ever present stigma attached to mental illness. At times humorous, at times poignant, Fadeaway Girl is an amalgam of emotions, life experiences, and lessons learned. It’s a story of loss, determination, perseverance, and triumph.
