TELLING: Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

SEATTLE  -- Committee for Children (CFC) and Oregon Abuse Advocates and Survivors in Service (OAASIS) are proud to present the upcoming production of TELLING: Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse Step into the Light. 
The play features seven courageous adult survivors who step into the light and reveal their secrets to the audience. Their true stories are woven together to create a tapestry of pain, secrecy, and ultimately, hope. Written by Margie Boulé and directed by Jamie M. ReaTELLING will run March 31–April 2 at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month.
With the use of visual images, original music, movement, dance, and poetry, the TELLING cast share their personal stories of prolonged abuse by brothers, fathers, mothers, teachers, priests, babysitters, strangers, and "friends" of the family. With courage, some trepidation, and even some humor they step onto the stage and recount experiences that changed their lives dramatically. Their stories are a roadmap to healing and hope for other survivors.
"TELLING was inspired by the Secret Survivors National Initiative series created by the award-winning Ping Chong + Company," playwright Margie Boulé noted. "For those looking for an experience that will evoke powerful emotions, negative and positive, and have you leaving the theater feeling hopeful, joyous, and excited, this is the play to see."
Social service organizations around the country who participated in arts and activism training with Ping Chong + Company are now creating their own theatrical productions and projects featuring the voices and experiences of survivors of child sexual abuse.
"We are proud to bring TELLING to the Seattle community, not simply because of its artistic quality, but because of its bedrock message: The only way to prevent and heal from sexual abuse is by talking about it," Committee for Children Executive Director Joan Cole Duffell said. "Audiences will come away inspired by these stories of courage, transformation, and hope."
"What we're doing with TELLING is sharing stories and giving people the opportunity to walk through this journey together," said OAASIS Education Director Klarissa Oh. "We know that child sexual abuse is extraordinarily prevalent, and yet, it's silenced. When we talk about it, some of that power is broken, which is why this production is so important."
TELLING strives to help everyone in the community step into their own light of awareness and hope. A portion of the proceeds will benefit local organizations that work to prevent abuse and serve survivors through counseling and advocacy.
