The Theater Bug is showing the new original play You’re Still Here by Cori Anne Laemmel from July 28 to August 5 at their theater. Starring Melodie Madden Adams, Lauren Berst, and Bakari Jamal King and a cast of 30 other actors, You’re Still Here tells the story of a young woman named Mia who is confronted with grief following her father’s death. Grief takes a human form in this drama, and the cast exhibits the struggle to find reconciliation of emotional trauma in a unique way.
