Performance Notes

× Come for a two-part performance by spoken word artist, former Canadian poetry SLAM champ, theatre artist, and musician Brendan McLeod.

Brain is an upbeat, intense story about the miracle of the mind. It's Brendan's hilarious and heart-breaking monologue that maps his experiences with obsessive compulsive disorder—from a teenager struggling to understand his obsessions, to an adult battling psychosis. Brendan also sees a bigger picture, about the nature of thought and the importance of friendship.
