The Empty Space, Tempe map
By the time Josh Rivedal turned twenty-five, he though he’d have the perfect life – a few years singing on Broadway, his own television show, and his face on the cover of the National Enquirer as Bigfoot’s not-so-secret lover. Instead, his resume is filled with minor league theatre and an appearance on The Maury Povich Show – a career sidetracked by his father’s suicide and a messy lawsuit from his mother. Tortured by his thoughts, he finds himself on the ledge of a fourth floor window, contemplating jumping out. In turn he must reach out to the only person who can help him before it’s too late.
The Gospel According to Josh is a 30 character, 7 song one man show, based on a book; now on The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s recommended reading list for survivors of suicide loss. Josh Rivedal, New York City author, is a writer for the Huffington Post.
