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 is a unique look at the highs and lows of working for peanuts while trying to save the world one poem at a time.
Written and Performed by Helena D. Lewis. Directed by Leslie “ButtaFlySouL” Taylor. Presented by Urbintel Entertainment, Inc.
