Regeneration – an original new play by Nancy Rappaport
Each of us may find that we need to call on inner resources when we are challenged by our own vulnerability – with the impending fear of potential loss- we are forced to define what we hold close and value.
Rappaport cultivates strength and joy as she reflects on her journey with breast cancer. In a surprising twist, she finds comfort in a most unusual place.
Admission is $20 per person ($10 for members of the Friends of Mount Auburn).
No stranger to the power of narrative, Rappaport is a child psychiatrist, author, and Harvard associate professor.
