The Way You Made Me: PLAYBILL
THE WAY YOU MADE ME
Written by Lindsay Partain
Produced & Directed by Devon Roberts
December 1-18, 2022
“A Breath Caught Between Heart and Hope”
Using her trauma as a jumping-off point toward creating a better home for herself and her family, Imogen shares her gift of words with an unseen lover. As she unpacks boxes and herself, Imogen recounts through love letters how she discovered happiness despite a life of neglect.
A love story told by someone deemed “unlovable”, The Way You Made Me is a cathartic reflection on home, love, and belonging. This play welcomes us into Imogen’s heart and invites us to find comfort, peace, and perspective on the traumas we endure through life.

The Way You Made Me Stickers
The Creative Team behind this play has designed a series of stickers centered around belonging, holding space for yourself, and mental health. Stickers are $2.00 a piece and can be purchased on Venmo. We have limited quantities of these stickers, so advance orders are highly encouraged. Audiences looking to pre-purchase stickers can do so by venmo-ing $2.00 to @TheWayYouMadeMe. You can view the various stickers available on the Venmo profile, and take home one, or the complete 5-sticker series – just let our team know which stickers you want in your Venmo note and pick them up when you attend the show. Stickers will also be available to purchase (while quantities last!) during the run of the show in the CoHo lobby.
The Way You Made Me Love Notes
In The Way You Made Me, Imogen discovers and reflects on notes left throughout their life. These notes are poetic messages of love, pain, reflection, and peace, and as the play progresses, these notes get incorporated into the world we are building on stage. Join Imogen in filling the CoHo Theater with love and warmth – write and send a love note of your own! Simply send a $1.00 donation to the creative team on Venmo @TheWayYouMadeMe with a sweet message to yourself, your partner(s), family, friends, or members of your community in the description. Then, when you come to see the show, find your love note featured somewhere on the set of the show!
