My Brain Is Plastic is a coming of age story about a girl, her troubles, and hope. This one-woman show uses the lens of neuroscience to help us realize that we all have the capacity to re-wire our brain, and thus change our habits, because of our incredibly plastic brain. This show ran as a part of the 2016 Magnetic North Theatre Festival June 14 to 18. For more information on the show click here.
