Henry’s Story

  • A clever and imaginative allegory about the personal journey many of us take to cope with anxiety.


    In the Land of Vases, life is always coming up roses. For the vases who exist here, their days are spent walking around in constant admiration of each other’s beauty and originality, causing them all to literally erupt with joy — or so it seems. When Henry can’t pinpoint why he isn’t blossoming the same way other vases around him are, his anxiety takes hold.


    Suddenly, he fixates on being different than those around him, which creates an overflow of emotion and leads him to try and outrun his feelings.


    When his life feels like it’s about to burst, how will Henry learn to live with his anxiety?
