Survivor of clergy sexual abuse presents his play at Framingham State

FROM HURT TO HEALING: Cambridge poet and playwright Michael Mack was an 11-year-old altar boy in 1968 when his favorite Catholic priest invited him to the rectory to make a costume for a church play.

The sexual abuse that Mack suffered that day haunted him for decades, and ultimately led to his autobiographical play “Conversations with My Molester: A Journey of Faith,” which he will perform Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Framingham State University’s Dwight Performing Arts Center.
