‘Been There … UNdone That’ is about stopping violence

Here’s a play that asks the question – “In the face of cynicism, apathy, ignorance, greed, narcissism, corruption and war, what would it take to create a major shift in our consciousness?” – and then answers it. “Been There … UNdone That” proceeds to offer the four keys to stopping violence in ourselves and in our world.

It’s more than a play, though. Rather, it is a performance with a seminar that is powerful, humorous and insightful. Producers/actors Errol and Rochelle Strider call this kind of performance “Innertainment,” a new model of entertainment that uses philosophy, spirituality and psychology to inspire people to be their best.

Errol Strider writes, “I have spent the last 30 years experiencing myself and watching others struggle to be free, to get out of fear, shame, anger, depression and cynicism and step forward as confident, creative and loving beings and as contributing members to the human family. I have tried many different approaches … to achieve these goals, but finally, I go back to my roots. There, I continue to find the most effective tools for personal fulfillment and social service, for they do go hand in hand. I found in the process of producing a play all the ingredients needed to produce powerful individuals within a community who truly can ‘play their God-given role in life.'”

The Striders, who have spent 28 years taking their plays on the road, have been in professional theater for more than 35 years. Rochelle has appeared on Broadway in New York City, and Errol has written many books and plays, including the award-winning “Adventures to Closetmush.”
