Erika Land's PTSD and ME is a 45-minute one woman show that is irresistibly lined with head-bopping rhythms and palpable poetry. The story is about Land’s personal life, military experiences, and her struggles with PTSD. Land uses poetry as a way to express herself. “I felt stuck. My poetry opened a door for me to express my feelings and provided a way to share my story.”
Patrons can expect to leave the raw performance thoroughly entertained, yet with a better understanding of the various symptoms that can lead to the manifestation of PTSD. Land expresses her hopes of an engaging, post-show community conversation so that people will become more aware of the symptoms and be encouraged.
Erika Land is a 21st century War Poet, one of the only Cover Poets in the United States, an author, motivational speaker and more. She has published five books, written academic commentaries and performs nationwide at various venues.
