Brian Copeland gives an outstanding and very brave performance, not only contributing to the art of great theater, but performing a service to people suffering with depression and those who know and love them.

I have seen 5 times. Great to explain depression to others and what it is like for those of us that have depression. Not all serious, most funny!

Review from Robin A Hammond

I thoroughly enjoyed "The Waiting Period". It was very moving and funny at the same time. While entertaining, it also provided me with valuable insight into the disease of depression. Definitely a must see.

Very powerful message about what causes suffering and what it takes to have peace - love and forgive yourself.

Review from Laura Corbett

Witty, often laugh-out-loud-funny one-man show of Bryan's extremely painful, personal memories. Makes depression not so depressing — and a whole lot easier to talk about.

Brian Copeland manages to generate laughs while recounting his own bout with suicidal depression. While he's at it he also conveys important information for parents, spouses and friends of those who suffer depression.
I don't know how he does it,...continued

I thought Mr. Copland's performance was absolutely fabulous! It was informative, funny at times, but most importantly it shed light on a very common form of mental illness often over looked, or taken for granted ! I'd highly recommend it to all...continued
