A seminary student turned actor, Ted Swartz teamed with Lee Eshelman in 1987 to write and perform comedy pieces for a youth leaders retreat. The team continued to create together until Eshelman took his own life in 2007. Swartz’s multi-media one-man play, Laughter is Sacred Space, explores the paradox of working with a comedic partner struggling with bipolar disorder, and the challenge of writing and performing stories about God while experiencing the absence of God after Eshelman’s death.
