Join us for the reading of a new work by Debbie Gerstein and Heather Ross made from the stories of those survivibg abuse in all its forms. EXIT is a play about choosing to believe that things can be different. It shares our stories of verbal, emotional, psychological, physical or sexual abuse. Almost everyone has a story or knows someone who does. This play allows for humanity to hear the complete story---the person before the violence or abuse, the struggle to hold on to hope, claiming one’s own personal power, the process of healing and moving forward. Sharing the story brings it out from the shadows and into the light. Change is possible, everyone is responsible.

Stay following the reading for informal feedback and talk with the creators at The Butterfly Bar. Feeback during this stage of creating new work is critical to the process, so your attendance, though not required, is much appreciated. The bar and Patrizi's will be open at 5pm serving unique cocktails and delicious Italian food.
