“Recovery from mental illness IS possible.” -Victoria Maxwell, Bi-Polar Princess

Funny You Don’t Look Crazy


…is the much anticipated ‘sister’ show to Victoria Maxwell’s hit Crazy for Life. This high energy, irreverent one woman show is the second instalment of her bipolar escapades, capturing the world of work before, during and after bipolar disorder, anxiety and psychosis.

Follow her mad dash from acting with John Travolta to Safeway cashiering to wearing backless hospital greens, participating in vocational rehab with job coaches and back into employment again.

This true life story both entertains and educates, exploding stigmas and revealing glimpses of one face of psychiatric illness and the journey back to work. But at its essence, the play is a celebration of the richness of life, the strength of the human spirit and the power of the human heart. Audience members walk away with an expanded vision not of what’s improbable, but instead of what is possible.

“Victoria takes the painful reality of living with mental illnesses and turns it into something we can understand, laugh with her about and come away feeling empowered and ready to take action. Brava!”

Sue Bergeson, Past President, Depression Bipolar Support Alliance
