    • Feeling All The Feelings

      Description:

      Laila is a 10 year-old girl who feels feelings so big, in fact, that she suspects they might be TOO big in other people's eyes. She comes up with a way to express her emotions that seems to make everyone else happy. But will it work for HER? In this funny, emotional, interactive one-person play starring and written by Lynne Streeter Childress, Building Better People Productions explores the enormous range of kids' emotions, the pressure they feel to be accepted, and the awesomeness that comes from feeling ALL of your feelings. Our play was written with the advice and input of professionals in child mental and physical health. Run-time- 40 minute show and 15-minute post-show workshop. Comes with a Teacher's Guide.
