Joan Chittister ... Her Story, My Story, Our Story

The D’Angelo Performing Arts Center was full for the one woman play "Joan Chittister ... Her Story, My Story, Our Story" presented as part the Joan D. Chittister Lecture Series at Mercyhurst University on Friday evening, May 3. The play was written and performed by Teri Bays, a professional actress and performer from Arizona who explained, “It is about intersecting lives of women facing adversity, abuse and injustice.” The mothers of both Sister Joan and Teri were childhood friends who experienced domestic abuse as children. The play was well received and Sister Joan and Teri were affirmed with several standing ovations.

Following the performance Sister Joan spoke to the audience and answered questions. “It was an inspirational and memorable evening,” said Sister Anne Wambach, prioress. “You could feel the intent listening of the audience to a story that very possibly rang true for many.”
