Name: Mary Goggin

Tell us about you.

Well..now I am a bestselling, award winning storyteller!! Irish born parents ..New York born.. 31 years sober on February 18, 2019 !! I am a professional union actor for the last 20 years .

Tell us about your current project?

Runaway Princess, a Hopeful Tale of Heroin, hooking and happiness is about hope.. I wrote this show to heal myself and others. I am finding that in government funding , the use of methadone and narcon is recommended..in other words do not talk and do not die it looks better politically. My show is about talking about everything .. and healing and hope!! Big time!!

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

I’m at Frigid Festival now under St. Mark’s ..its somewhere I would’ve gone when I ran away to the village in the 60s ..it’s synchronicity the Frigid Festival is amazing friendly and fair when it comes to $$$

What’s next for you?

I’ve been invited to Savannah to do the show in the county jail I may do Atlanta Fringe ..waiting to hear.. ..Dublin Fringe later this year which just seems right as that’s where the story begins … most of all I am listening to the universe to tell me what’s next! Mostly, I listen to my award winning director, Dan Ruth. I consider Dan to be my mentor as well ..I don’t know if he knows that.. he does now ..but in terms of the path to success iwith a solo show I want what he has ..so I do what he does and follow his suggestions. I am grateful that he is in my life was another instinct situation finding him.

What is the name of the last show you saw?

The Ferryman

Any advice for your peers?
