I went to see Michael Mack at the Boston Playwright’s Theatre. He put on his new solo play, Conversations with My Molester. He did an incredible job of describing an indescribable experience. As the name implies, his story is brutal: one of childhood sexual abuse.
My daughter Patricia and I went to see Michael perform his other one-man play, Hearing Voices (Speaking In Tongues), nearly a year ago in Groton, Massachusetts. That show was our first introduction to the concept of including the voices in recovery. Before then, they were something to be denied. His show empowered us to begin a conversation with Patricia’s voices. And including them has made a remarkable and positive difference in her journey.
