It’s a Beautiful Wound
IT’S A BEAUTIFUL WOUND, written and performed by Rich Orloff, is the true story of Rich’s adventures in underground therapy using MDMA and psilocybin mushrooms, based on cutting-edge experiments designed to help people heal from deep emotional wounds. At times humorous and at times harrowing, IT’S A BEAUTIFUL WOUND takes the audience through the experience, in an honest, vivid and compelling way.
Since late 2018, IT’S A BEAUTIFUL WOUND has been presented not only in theaters across the country, but also in a variety of situations, including the Arizona Psychedelics Conference, Brooklyn Psychedelic Society, Philadelphia Psychedelic Society, and the Center for Optimal Living (a Manhattan group exploring new frontiers in therapy).
Rich Orloff is the author of 18 full-length plays (mostly comedies and mostly award-winning). The New York Times called his play BIG BOYS “rip-roaringly funny” and named FUNNY AS A CRUTCH a Critic’s Pick. His comedy ROMANTIC FOOLS has had over 100 productions in the USA, Africa, Asia and Europe, including two productions in Madrid, where apparently they’re no better at romance than we are.
Shakti Mayumi is a Ceremonial Artist, Healing Facilitator & Community Leader. She has served hundreds of people in diverse communities, from large scale festivals to local events in LA such as women’s empowerment circles, new moon ceremonies and community fundraisers. It is her deepest joy to share sacred music infused with healing intentions to support us in restoring our connection with Mother Earth and returning to Love.
