Once upon a time, there was a Princess born to a King and Queen who were banished from the island of √Čriu and forced to flee to America in a coffin ship. Former New York City call girl Mary Goggin shares the true, award-winning story of her Irish Catholic trauma, alcoholism, drug addiction and prostitution. The multitude of characters she encounters in her journey from utter darkness to absolute joy, spring to life in this one-woman tour de force. Performed with dark humour, unflinching honesty and pathos.
