Still, Birth Helps Release the Trauma of Losing a Child

Still, Birth Helps Release the Trauma of Losing a Child

Still, Birth

Robyne Parrish and Coley Campany’s multi-dimensional drama, Still Birth, playing at the NY Summerfest, uses dance, myth, and vignettes to tell the trauma of losing a child in the womb. Stillbirths, miscarriage and late term abortion’s due to defects are taboo subject that affect 5.82 deaths per 1,000 live births in the U.S., which often leaves a trail of disappointment, loss, and grief.

The fabulous actors include Amanda Brooke Lerner, *Kim Rios Lin, Bree O’Connor, Grant Harris, Neil Tyrone Pritchard, Javana ‘Rev’ Mundy, and Laura Sisskin Fernández. Each brings a special moment to this layered piece that seeks to open the lines of communication between those who have been touched by pregnancy loss in any form and on any level.

Robyne Parrish and Coley Campany are members of the Labyrinth Theatre Ensemble – LAB NYC and it shows in their carefully crafted and intelligent work. They succeed in making not only the audience understand this painful separation, but also show a spirituality to this process giving guidance on how to move past it with dignity.

This is a play to be seen by women and the men who love them everywhere. Bravo at such a touching piece of theatre.
