Terri is the writer and performer of the one-woman show Anatomy of a Doll, which she has performed for the past 19 years at conferences, theatres and universities throughout New York, New Jersey, in Washington DC, Florida and California, as well as at the 2003 Toronto Fringe Festival.

Anatomy of a Doll is an autobiographical poetic one-woman piece which illustrates the connection between childhood sexual abuse and the abuse of substances as a coping method.

Anatomy of a Doll received grants from NYFA and Poets and Writers for its initial performances and received The Daily News’ “Best Theatre-Pick of the Week" in 1998.

"Anatomy" can be performed in its 35 minute entirety or as a hybrid of theatrical scenes and key-note narrative. Both incarnations are typically followed by a 15-20 minute Q&A. Terri is currently at work on a second act which would double the running time.

"A superbly acted, searing, heartbreaking, intelligent, poetry-prose piece, which confronts the awakening of memory- and the revealed truth- of the devastation of the child, and the triumph of the woman." - Veronica Golos, Poet in Residence and artistic director of literary programs at the 14th Street Y and author of "Vocabulary of Silence"- winner of the 2012 New Mexico Book Award.
