“Just Breathe: The Quest for a Little Piece of Mind… and Chocolate”
The One Woman Show Performed by Lesley Smith
This profoundly funny one-woman show is a must see for those who believe in the power of laughter and live performance to transform an audience. It’s inspirational, laugh till it hurts “human” comedy that reaffirms our faith in goodness, and ignites in us the possibility of love and joyful “Being”. “Just Breathe” gives voice and catharsis for the “every woman/man” in their quest for peace of mind and purpose. She’s a favorite at Unity Churches, corporations and organizations.
Lesley lustily seeks advice from therapists, coaches and spiritual gurus against the backdrop of music and message. Her hilarious ventriloquist-characters embody both the frustrations and hopefulness of our time, giving people of all ages and walks of life, a chance to be delighted by the world again.
