Written and performed by 2021 MacDowell Fellow, Erika Renee Land, PTSD and ME is a one woman play irresistibly lined with truth and palpable poetry. The story is about Land’s personal life, military experiences, and her struggles with PTSD.

Land uses poetry as a way to express herself. “I felt stuck. My poetry opened a door for me to express my feelings and provided a way to share my story.”

Patrons can expect to leave the raw performance thoroughly entertained and with a better understanding of PTSD.

Land hopes PTSD and Me will prompt post-show conversations about PTSD, because if more people are aware, more people are able to help.

10% of the profits from each show will be donated to local organizations that assist homeless veterans.
