2019 FRIGID New York Festival presents Mary Goggin’s multiple award-winning show, “Runaway Princess, a Hopeful Tale of Heroin, Hooking and Happiness.” In “Runaway Princess…” Goggin, a writer/actor and former professional call girl, shares a story of Irish Catholicism, sex and addiction. The tale is laced with humor and pathos and a multitude of characters she encountered along the way to ultimately finding joy. “Runaway Princess…” which swept up three 2018 United Solo awards (Best Storyteller, Solo Critics Choice, Best Seller), will have five performances in the 12 year old FRIGID Festival, founded by Horse Trade Theater Group in 2007.
