A play written by Amy Marschak

This one-woman play performed and written by Amy Marschak, will take you on a journey through one girl's life, her optimism, her secret and her striving past odds, all stacked against her.

    The secret is incest.
    The girl is me.
    And the courage is mine 
    and so many others who have survived.  
    -Amy Marschak

A solo show about incest, you're thinking: Urrgh- squirm -time, WRONG!  This is funny (yes, funny), touching, insightful... Amy Marschak does a materful job, especially portraying her younger self, (the little girl voice we hear at the beginning of the play is amazing), and I never missed seeing other people on stage.
