Lemon Meringue is a moving, one-act number on Rich and his struggles to overcome the devastating effects of childhood sexual abuse. We witness his anger and pain slowly giving way to happiness and forgiveness. This true story, told through music, dance and dialogue, illustrates one man’s inspirational journey towards survival and finding, then healing, his inner child.
Written by Rich Ryan, with original music by Athena Reich, Lemon Meringue is a compelling success story that should not be missed. It will leave your heart soaring.
