In Our Own Words; Pioneers of Alcoholics Anonymous
Played to standing room only audiences in San Antonio, "In Our Own Words" brings to life the pages of the Big Book, The Grapevine and the recordings of the pioneers of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Simply, with humor and depth, the play retells the stories of our founders in New York, Akron and Cleveland. Going further into our history, "In Our Own Words" also shares the lesser-known struggles of the pioneering members of special composition groups in the fellowship, including the first women and young people in AA, as well as early gay and African-American members. Join men and women like Marty Mann, Sybil Corwin, Barry Leach, Joe McQuany (and many more) on their search for a solution and a place to belong. Their stories, and this play, are not to be missed.
"A satisfying and effective dramatic presentation ... The best play I have seen about early AA history!" -- Glenn C., AA Historian and author of The Factory Owner and the Convict.
With new productions underway in California, New York, Mexico and Sweden, the Castro Country Club is proud to present the original cast under the direction of the author herself.
