Garth McLean's one person show, Looking For Lightning, is a story of courage, caution and perseverance. After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, McLean takes us on a journey from the fast paced life of Hollywood to Canada to India and the feet of yoga master BKS Iyengar. Looking For Lightning was initially born out of a writing exercise on the impact of the terror attacks of 9/11. Looking for Lightning reflects the universal truth of the human spirit and will to overcome the challenges of life to navigate a landscape of fear and uncertainty while leaving us laughing along the way. McLean's journey is transformational for all.
Committed to raise awareness and benefit research and resource programs for persons with MS and other mobility challenges, Garth plans to take Looking For Lightning and the show's production to an international audience at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Participation in the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival also serves as a tribute to legendary yoga master, BKS Iyengar, for his humanitarian efforts in this centenary year of global celebrtions marking 100 years since his birth .
Of course, this requires funding. Your kind support to help fund the effort and benefit others is welcome and deeply appreciated.
