Hello, My Name Is A play by Jenni Miller

It’s a story about a Man and a Woman. Its about the heartbreaking circumstances that change her life. Its about how she cannot amend her circumstances and her struggle to regain her innocence in an institutionalized world. It’s about time, the reality of time, time without hope, without revolt. It’s about forgetfulness and passing into nothingness. It’s about loss, it’s about rape and it’s a wild ride…

“All rape is an exercise in power, but some rapists have an edge that is more than physical. They operate within an institutionalized setting that works to their advantage and in which a victim has little chance to redress her grievance. “ Against Our Will; Men, Women & Rape By Susan Brownmiller

Jenni Miller is a local actress, playwright, storyteller, community advocate. She's performed locally with Sowelu Theater Company, Curious Comedy, ART, Lakewood, Brainwaves, Hart, and the Magdeline Theater Company. She's a current member of Playback Theater Company and PDX Playwrights.
