The Emerson Theater Collaborative (etc) and New York Playwright, Producer and Actor, Suicide Prevention Activist, Josh Rivedal expressed our commitment to finding a solution to Suicide.

We deeply feel that without community and love no one can heal.

This project brings to light the importance of Suicide Prevention in relation to the mental health initiative and re-building our communities.


On April 5th -7th , 2013  Union Baptist Church will host the The Emerson Theater Collaborative's production of  (The Gospel According to Josh) written by Josh RIvedal and directed by Josh Grobain. 

This one man show  encompasses a 30 character, 7 song show, about a small town boy who follows his dreams to Hollywood despite the tempestuous relationship with his pious father. Along the way he must navigate his religious upbringing, an escape to New York, his starring roles in two reality TV shows, and ultimately his father's tragic suicide. Discussion will follow each performance.
