a reading of a full-length play with music Free admission and refreshments!
Patricia, a high school senior, wakes up in a surgical ICU and to find her teenage world forever changed. But even this new medical reality has not erased a secret only her mother knows - Patricia was sexually abused by her voice teacher for months preceding her coma. Forced to come to terms with a past she's hid from even herself, Patricia struggles with her emotional repairs as doctors work to save her life. The play follows her physical and emotional battle with recovery through 27 surgeries, and the battle to reclaim her voice, from the abuser who took it away.
