Is Any of This Helping?

A Senior Thesis in TDPS for Will Gonzalez

by Will Gonzalez

A man sitting in front of a chalkboard filled with various objects

A lounge singer on Christmas Eve,

A how-to tutorial on how to make a how-to tutorial,

A broken clock who’s only right two times a day– 

Is ANY of this helping? 


Is Any of This Helping? is a comedic character cabaret exploring the ways we try (and fail) to help others and ourselves. There will be people, places, and things. There will be messes made and songs sang. There will be a short presentation somewhere in there. There will be opportunities for audience interaction and involvement.


Hope this helps! :)
