The anchor piece of the Confessions exhibit is Fore/closure—an original one-woman stage show by Gabby Creery based on her blog and popular column in the Jersey City Independent. Telling the riveting true account of a family’s turbulent journey down the rabbit hole of unemployment, poverty and the threat of homelessness, Gabby paints an intimate portrait not just of the devastating effects of the financial crisis on a family and a marriage, but also the ways in which community and joy can be found.
