Join Oscar-nominated filmmaker, author, and playwright Colin Campbell this Wednesday, Oct. 4th, 6:30 pm EST, for a live & streaming performance of his acclaimed play, Grief: A OneMan Sh*tShow.
Colin's two children, Ruby and Hart, were killed when a drunk driver hit the family's car. This cataclysmic loss prompted Colin's deep exploration of grief and how we show up - and sometimes falter - when comforting others.
Join Colin in person at New York's People's Forum, or streaming online, for a performance of excerpts from the play, followed by an interview, audience conversation and book signing.

All Things is an adapted grief journal from Steve Barlow, an experienced UK therapist, who wanted to present a 'grief as it happens' experience to readers. Following the sudden death of his younger brother, the author here presents one year of his grief journey, which covers many classic themes, explores the often side-lined bereavement experience of sibling loss and inevitably brings him face to face with issues relating to his own mortality in a very real rather than abstract sense.

One of few books focused specifically on adult sibling loss, The Oxidation of Grief is a compilation of personal essays written as the author mourned the death of her younger sister. The second half of the book includes the stories of 13 others whose siblings died before their time. Many books are available on the loss of parents and children. Many are also available to help young children mourn the loss of a sibling. Described by some as “the forgotten mourners,” the contributors to this book express grief for the loss of the special, life-long relationships between brothers and sisters.
Evelyn is a feature length documentary about a family's journey to overcome the grief they hold over the death of their brother and son 13 years earlier to suicide.
The film is available as a free resource to be used for community and educational screenings.
