What She Knows: One Woman's Way Through Incest to Joy
What She Knows is a one-woman performance which depicts a full range of what it is like to grow up in a sexually abusive family; what one woman experienced and then did to reclaim her life and make it worth living. Witness the main character figuratively (and once literally) dancing between her life’s joys and traumas, between time periods and experiences showing how she survived and ultimately came to thrive.
The original score, composed and performed by master guitarist John Sheldon, provides live music that weaves a heightened impact into the play’s dramatic tempo and opens audiences to the full richness of its sadness’ and delights.
The play is presented as a 60 minute dramatic reading by the author, Donna Jenson. In a post performance dialogue the audience is invited to engage with Donna, exploring the issues surrounding sexual abuse that What She Knows has raised for them. Jackie Humphreys, LICSW, is present at all performances, available to audience members needing support.
