It was appreciative audience members who convinced Josh Rivedal that he should make suicide prevention a part of his message.
Rivedal — a playwright and actor living in New York City — started performing a one-man play about his life and coping with his father’s suicide about a year and a half ago. After each showing, people would come and thank him for speaking about suicide.
“It led me to want to do a little more...maybe I could help someone,” Rivedal explained.
The actor now incorporates a suicide prevention open discussion after his play, which he started performing along the East Coast and now is moving westward. Rivedal’s performance, “The Gospel According to Josh,” will begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16, in Cutlip Auditorium of the McNutt Campus Center at William Woods University. The show is free and open to the public.
