This January Stephanie Morin-Robert will grace the Mainline Theater (3997 Boul. Saint-Laurent) stage as she shares her touching story with us about the struggles of fitting in and self acceptance as she takes us back in time and depicts her world as a little girl with a very singular outlook on life. Stephanie walks us through her experience with having a glass eyeand her struggles with finding self acceptance and love, whilst dealing with the obvious hormonal factors that come into play during adolescence. You are invited to join this once in a lifetime experience to rub shoulders with Stephanie in her intimate story-telling setting. You’ll cry, laugh, empathize, relate, and may even gain a new outlook on your own life circumstances after hearing this courageous tale.

“Me, Myself, and Eye“ is something you won’t want to miss out on! It is a heartwarming story that I believe will resonate with everyone. Everyone has gone through the feelings of self rejection which can be a really treacherous and slippery slope to go down, so I bet we can all relate!
