ROBIN’S WISH

Directed by Tylor Norwood

 

Co-presented with North Bend Theatre & Volition Brewing

 

Tickets Now Available!

Screening Access available August 28.

 

In August 2014, the world was shocked to find out that Robin Williams had died by suicide. For someone who brought so much humor to the world, it was a tragic, traumatic end. But no one knew how much more there was to the story. Left to speculate on Robin’s motives, the media circus spun out further and further, leaving the public in the dark about a complicated and obscured truth: Robin – bright, funny, quick witted – had lost a battle against an unknown enemy: the nearly impossible to diagnose brain disease Lewy body dementia. Knowing the truth can make all the difference. LBD is a disease that, while all too common, is unknown to most, and without a diagnosis causes heightened fear, paranoia and confusion. In the end, Robin may have lost his final battle with dementia, but he succeeded at his lifelong goal – To make people less afraid. This is Robin’s wish.

 

A single ticket purchase is good for a two-day pass to watch Robin’s Wish. Your purchase supports North Bend Theatre & North Bend Film Festival!

Something strange is coming to the virtual world.

Each episode will feature a strange new theme and storytellers will be challenged to win over the audience with their storytelling skills. Audience Choice winners will be invited to participate in the official 2020 North Bend Film Festival storytelling hour this October!

Event hosted by Seattle-based storyteller, comedian and weirdo Emmett Montgomery — NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Seattle Weekly’s Best Comedian 2015, 2017, 2018 and host and curator of the community based “comedy” show Joketellers Union (with Brett Hamil) and the experimental basement/storytelling show The Magic Hat.

 

SEPTEMBER THEME:

ISOLATION. Whether it’s because of lockdowns or not, everyone has experienced some form of loneliness in their life. In this edition, we’ll hear real life experiences from storytellers where they’ve overcome or in some cases, were consumed by the feeling of solitude.
