The Life is Sweet Project ()

Produced by

Angelwalk Theatre

Playwright: Ashley Gibson
Musical Director: Tara Litvack


Meridian Arts Centre – Greenwin Theatre


February 10th, 2014 (one night only)


In February 1998 Ashley’s mom committed suicide. Fifteen years later, Ashley created a cabaret show to honour her mother’s memory. Through a blog series leading up to the sold-out show, Life is Sweet told both Ashley’s story and many others, creating a much-needed dialogue about mental health. The show is an inspirational story about overcoming tragedy and finding the sweetness in life, despite the challenges. (Company Submission)
