Very quickly the life she worked hard to keep together begins to unravel when she receives an unfavorable health diagnosis. A drama with comedy, The Purification Process is her journey through denial, acceptance, and ultimately, hope.

The InspirationMy Aunt Tia was a loving, creative, beautiful woman. She was one of my first lifelong friends. In 2007, she died from breast cancer. Like Tia, many woman impacted by breast cancer (and their families) face this disease silently and alone. Through this play, our intention is to build a network of support for those impacted by cancer, as well as to encourage dialogue, awareness of resources, and visibility among communities of color.
While the Purification Process is not Tia's story, this work is a tribute to her legacy.
