“Tim Collins visited our school to perform TO BE HONEST, a play about cyber-bullying, bullying, depression and their consequences. Being a one-man play I was blown away by Tim’s acting ability as he changed characters throughout the play. I had a great view of the students faces as I was sitting in front corner. Several times I noticed students wiping a tear or glancing down, deep in thought. After the captivating presentation many of the students sought teachers to talk with about a variety of issues. One particular student came to me in tears and asked if we could talk. She said she wasn’t struggling with any of the issues from the show but realized she needed to speak up and ask for help for her eating disorder. She said she had been hiding it for several months just like the character in the play was hiding his depression and she knew this was the moment to get help before she talked herself out of it. This show, because it is so relevant to current day adolescent struggles, has the ability to touch students in ways that we as teachers are unable. I would highly suggest this show to any middle or high school.
Tim, thank you again for coming and please keep up the good work. You have been truly gifted. Your message needs to be heard.”
