Untold: A Verbatim Play says
UNTOLD weaves music, movement, and excerpts from over one hundred interviews to explore the mental health crisis in America, where the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate 46% of the population will struggle with mental illness at some point during their lifetime. This evocative meditation on hope and resiliency marks the San Diego debut of Blindspot Collective.

The creators of UNTOLD collected interviews with social workers and therapists; individuals struggling with addiction, eating disorders, and personality disorders; veterans battling PTSD; and survivors of suicide, all conducted and recorded by local students. Stories from those interviews lay the groundwork for a show that provocatively portrays these individuals’ bravery, vulnerability, and resiliency.

Wow, just wow. Not only were these stories amazing, but it may have been the most diverse cast I've ever seen in a show in San Diego. Thank you, Blindspot. I can't wait to see what you do next.

An incredibly powerful piece of theater! I was very impressed by the balance between struggle and resiliency, vulnerability and hope.

Amazing, important, moving. I was so impacted by this play and hope that it goes on to other cities - such a timely piece that people need to see!
