These Things Happen is a play about the costs of keeping, and of revealing, a painful family secret. Joanne, a 40-ish painter living in suburban New York, is stunned to learn that her daughter, Jesse, was molested as an adolescent by her uncle—the same uncle who, we discover, abused Joanne at the same age. Jesse intends to confront and expose him on the occasion of his granddaughter’s bat mitzvah, a plan that meets with denial and resistance from both her mother and grandmother. An intensifying series of confrontations between Jesse, Joanne and her father and mother uncover patterns of betrayal that span generations—and threaten to extend into the future. It’s up to Jesse to lead the battle to break the chain of lies told in the name of a family's 'survival'.Written by Natalie Bates.
