Elise Forier Edie and This I Believe

essayist Elise Forier EdieEach week we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - today from Elise Forier Edie, a professional playwright, author and recovering addict.  She and her husband live in Washington state, where they recently helped found a new theatre, called DogTown Theatre Company.  When she’s not writing, Edie teaches classes in stage movement and children’s theatre at Central Washington University.
