WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT Call Me Crazy: Diary of A Mad Social Worker:

“This is REALLY a great show!”Carlos Iro Burgos

“Welp…..after eight years of knowing about it, & in my fourth time ever entering the Nuyorican Poets’ Café, I FINALLY got to see Helena Lewis’ one woman play, “Call Me Crazy: Diary of A Mad Social Worker.” What. An. Experience. The amount of respect I had already for HDL as an artist and social worker (which is equal to gentrified NY rent) tripled tonight. Thank you, Helena, for everything you do.”Sean Battle

ABOUT Call Me Crazy: Diary of A Mad Social Worker:

“After being assigned more work than she can handle, social worker Lewis has a nervous breakdown, tries to kill her boss, and is committed for psychiatric observation. After being restrained, Lewis recalls her true-life experiences working with prostitutes, drug addicts and prisoners, portraying twenty-five different characters from pimps to menopausal women.

“Call Me Crazy”…a unique look at the highs and lows of working for peanuts while trying to save the world one poem at a time.”

Written & Performed By: Helena D. Lewis, MSW, LSW, LCADC

Directed By: Leslie “ButtaFlySoul” Taylor
