“Women: Finding Your Voice – What Does It Mean to Live With Addiction? Human Stories,” Presented by 3 Voices
April 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Tuesday, April 23rd, Anne Lucas and Ariele Goldman will discuss “What Does It Mean to Live With Addiction? Human Stories” as part of the spring “Women: Finding Your Voice” series focusing on addiction, which started in March.
Marbleheaders will recognize Lucas as a prominent actor, singer, director, producer, and playwright. For the April program, she will draw upon her own personal experience with a family member struggling with addiction and how Al-Anon helped her deal with it. She has written of her experience with addiction in Recovery, a play that premiered at Theater for the New City in NYC last fall and will be produced at MLT this coming fall, portraying three sets of mothers and daughters who meet in rehab.
Goldman fought her own addiction and now helps others in recovery. She is from Swampscott, Massachusetts, and notes that she had a very normal, healthy upbringing with two loving parents. Yet, she struggled with addictive behaviors including drugs and alcohol. In 2017 she learned to put the pieces back together. Today, she lives a life she “could have never even imagined was possible.”
On Tuesday, June 4th, the speakers will come together again in a follow-up session to provide additional information and to answer questions.
Each program will offer opportunities for questions and answers and an opportunity to continue the conversation with light desserts and beverages.
