Roofing – A Workshop Production

Polly Klaas Community Theater 417 Western Avenue, Petaluma

Date: Friday May 17, 2024 Time: 7:00 pm Ticket link: Description: ROOFING Presented by Sonoma Foundation for Behavioral Heath The Andrew Conti Workshop Andrew Conti, grew up in the Bay Area, a talented musician and artist, grappled with his own battles with mental health and addiction until his passing last year. His fellowship, his friends, and his family allowed him to be sober at the end of his life.  It is with the clarity of a sober mind that Andrew began to write the screenplay "Roofing".

Although Andrew was unable to complete his work, we honor his legacy by presenting an adapted version of his play, exploring the universal human experiences magnified by addiction and mental health challenges and the search for self forgiveness, acceptance and a way to embrace the flawed and hopeful life that's possible to live on the road to recovery.
