On the edge of/a cure

Julia Lee Barclay-Morton’s newest stage text, On the edge of/a cure, inspired by the #metoo movement, asks how can we speak the unspeakable? Especially that which manifest as body memories—maybe a snapshot or two—too real to ignore but resisting coherent narrative? Who will believe you? If no one believes you, how can you believe you? If you can be heard, will you find a way to speak? A way to heal?
