What is Your Voice has come together with Fund for Women Sussex County and Philanthropy Delaware to host this important educational event for the community. Runaway Princess is a riveting performance about human trafficking, drug addiction, alcoholism, and finding yourself after reaching your lowest low.
Mary Goggin is a New York based actor born to Irish emigrants, raised in the Bronx and sent away to convent schools in both Dublin and West Cork. Ms. Goggin’s Irish Catholic experiences drove her further down a path of sexual repression and self-hate, eventually finding strength and redemption.
A professional union actor for 23 years, Mary has since appeared in numerous stage productions, television series, films and commercials.
Her favorite recent roles include “Ella O’Neill” (wife of Eugene O’Neill) in Ann Hansen’s Road to Babylon in the Broadway Bound Festival. She has enjoyed being directed by Cyndy Marion in numerous Tennessee works including Cavalier for Ma’Lady, Clothes For A Summer Hotel, and A Perfect Analysis Given by a Parrot. Mary appeared in PB & J for the NY Fringe Festival and Born to be Blue, a winner in the Samuel French Festival. Her favorite TV roles include spots in “Broad City,” “Law and Order,” “Guiding Light,” “The Grind” (Amazon). Favorite film roles include “Little Children,” “MAD,” “The Trouble with Bliss,” “Gasoline,” “Bronx Paradise.” Mary is the recent winner of the Best Actress Award at The Freeway Film Festival for her role in “Reservations,” a film by Jeannine Flynn, directed by Neal Hemphill.
To date, Mary’s most important work is the writing and performing of the award winning, RUNAWAY PRINCESS, A HOPEFUL TALE OF HEROIN, HOOKING AND HAPPINESS. It is why she was born. To destigmatize addiction and all that goes with it. To drive home the utmost importance of normalizing emotions and to show, not tell our connection, our humanity. Mary Goggin is available for all work.
