It's been two years since the one-act version of "Waking Up Alive" won the Jury's Award at the 2015 Detroit Fringe Festival. Now, two years later, Playwright Breon is ready to bring the full story to life. The video above features clips from the reading as well as segments from the hour plus discussion inspired by the provocative piece that tackles religion and mental illness. Over 30 attendees from different walks of life attended the event and while their views varied on many things, one thing mostly everyone could agree on was describing the piece of art as: "brave."
