Mariette Hartley shares her personal experiences with suicide & the related sequence of events that led to her commitment to the theatre as a means of exploring, understanding & ultimately, preventing suicide. She sees the theatre as a safe, dark place where people can “watch what is going on in the head of someone who is contemplating suicide” & get in touch with feelings they can’t get to during the day. She cites”Silence of the Heart” as a responsible film that speaks to everyone. (NB)
