Person-to-Person: A Mother Teresa Project

The play helps us to see the value of every person just as Mother Teresa did.

"To us what matters is [the] individual...to show that love and respect for the person.  I believe in person-to-person..." ~Mother Teresa

Description of Person-to-Person

Created and performed by Christin Jezak with original music by Nate Jezak and lyrics by Mother Teresa, this project is the fruit of much research and contemplation of Mother's beliefs on human dignity. As part of the process, Christin spent five months working with Mother's sisters, the Missionaries of Charity, in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Because Mother Teresa's life was truly about those she loved, she opens the play and then disappears so the audience may encounter the true value of Frances, a woman in her 20's who is searching for meaning; Clare, a spunky nursing home patient; Jerry, a homeless man; Ann, a prostitute; and Joy, a disabled woman who loves life.

Christin earned her M.A. in theatre from Villanova University and a B.A. in theatre from Bridgewater State College.
