In October 2016, the 75-minute play The One With Friends premiered at the UCLA Center for Health Services and Society in a university theater, telling a story about how a common media experience, in this case the popular ’90s television series Friends, has the power to foster relationships and heal broken hearts. It also addressed the reigning stigma about mental illness in the United States.
