Shadows of the Mind is an original play by Kanaan Hesseling that explores the physical manifestation of the inner thoughts of a depressed, anxiety-ridden teenager named Charlie. As Charlie strives to keep her head above water, she hides the depths of her struggle in dealing with her friend, Kevin’s suicide. Her support structure is undeniable, a mother and father who love her but differ on how to help their daughter, a friend who exudes positivity and unconditional love and Kevin’s mother, a comforting partner in the grief process. But as the shadows in her mind intensify, Charlie comes to a crossroad. Will the outside influences in her life prevail or will the shadows win?
