Ted Swartz and his Ted & Company TheaterWorks team are known for blending Bible stories with comedy and poignancy, and pushing the envelope on issues of faith and social justice. But who is Ted Swartz?

Follow along in this engaging memoir as Swartz finds his way as a middle child in an eastern Pennsylvania traditional Mennonite home to his early work in the family butcher shop. Journey with Ted through the decision of uprooting his young family to attend seminary and then embracing life as a writer and actor. Get a glimpse into the friendship that led to the formation of the popular acting duo Ted & Lee.

This uniquely honest backstage tour of an artist's life and mind combines side-splitting reminiscences, heart-rending accounts of loss, and touching stories of restored faith and love. Swartz's engaging humor blends with his own stories of triumph and tragedy, and helps readers understand their own sense of place and how they're shaped by those around them.

    " I thoroughly enjoyed his writing re: Ted and Lee Theatreworks - written as his journey in theatre with Lee Eshleman (1992 - 2007); his grief following Lee's death and finding his way back. You will laugh hilariouslly at times- I did! "

    " Very funny book. Of course it helps that I know the author and saw many of the shows he writes about. Lee is definitely missed. "
