About the Show

Join the irreverent fun in this hilarious & heart-aching romp, as comedian & certified insane person Jan Derbyshire turns the audience into a mental health review board to help determine her current state of sanity. Come grapple with hefty questions like: What’s crazy? What isn’t crazy? Who decides? In this comic case, you do.

“Jan Derbyshire is funny and smart except when she isn’t, and then she’s something’ else.” – Jan Derbyshire

“For someone who has been certified insane, Jan Derbyshire is one of the sanest people I’ve ever encountered, says Handsome Alice Theatre’s Artistic Producer, Kate Newby. She’s also one of the most authentic and genuinely funny human beings on the face of the planet. I’d follow her insanity to the ends of the earth.”

CERTIFIED is created and performed by Jan Derbyshire, and Directed by Roy Surette with Movement Direction by Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg.

Playing at the Joyce Doolittle Theatre (in the Pumphouse Theatres), March 15, 16, & 17, 2018. Performance times are 7:30pm Thursday – Saturday, with a Saturday, March 17 matinee at 2:00pm.
