Hope is here! And she’s not alone. Tara Handron, the playwright and sole actor in her 60-minute play, discards clichéd representations of recovery and alcoholism and relies on complex characters and richly layered stories to expose the raw emotions so many alcoholic women experience. Handron’s back-to-back portrayals of over 15 female alcoholics (some sober, some not) of all ages, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds come out of Handron’s own research on the subject, in face-to-face and computer mediated recovery meetings, as part of her thesis requirement in the Communication, Culture & Technology master’s degree program at Georgetown University. Trained at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and the Second City in Chicago with many theatrical roles to her name, Handron brings talent and education to the stage as well as humor, poignancy, and a fresh voice to the once taboo subject of the female alcoholic.
