About the play: NEXT TO NORMAL is the story of Diana Goodman and her family. Traumatized by the death of her infant son from an undiagnosed intestinal obstruction, Diana has lived with bipolar depressive disorder and delusional episodes for the past seventeen years. The illness has affected everyone in her life, and has nearly torn her family apart on several occasions. NEXT TO NORMAL is an emotional powerhouse musical that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life.
