9780965329811: An Angel Cried a Tear Last Night: A Theatrical Memoir

A play about secrets, so well hidden, so intense, the best way to keep them...is to forget.
"An Angel Cried A Tear Last Night...is a journey through a girl's life, a girl with a secret so deep and dark she thinks that she must be insane.
"I must be crazy. My dad wouldn't do that to me." She is a little girl who fears growing old, not for the conventional reasons, but because she hates what adults do.
A little girl tries to disappear into the wrinkles of blankets and the rainbow reflections of rainbows on a window... Marschak's gradual piercing of that fog, and the slow summoning of courage to confront the secret, is portrayed with searing honesty and wrenching compassion.
It's brilliant must-see acting." -Edmonton Journal

"Although the material is distressing, Marschak uses humor and some involving dialogue to take the audience on a journey that touches on studying ballet, being an unemployed actress in Los Angeles and searching for rare and exotic desserts (all the better to mask her feelings with)." - J. M. Sullivan, The Evening Telegram (St. John's)
