Health Beat: Theater as a Healing Tool

How do you process tragedy? That's something this country has been dealing with through the pandemic. A local woman had to deal with a devastating loss even before the world shut down. She turned to words to help her and created a play following the death of her son Patrick at the hands of a drunken driver in Saratoga County. The play “13 Suits: A Mother's Monologues” was produced by the Outer loop Theater Experience. Rachael Yoder, the company's managing director, and Michael Herman, the founder and co-artistic director, are my guests.
