I'm very proud to have produced and starred in the play, The View From Here, by Margaret Dulaney. The play is about Fern, a high-spirited agoraphobic who is perfectly happy to watch the world go by as she waits for a sign from G-d telling her to throw open her screen door.
I learned a great deal about agoraphobia and the people who suffer from it during the process of working the production. We had a talk back with two former agoraphobics, and we gave a portion of our proceeds to the ADAA, the Anxiety Disorders Association of America. www.ADAA.org
