I just finished writing my first rehearsal plan for a devising project that I’m directing for my theatre board. Although I’ve been preparing for the project for months, I’ve been freaking out about making an actual rehearsal plan …so I’ve been majorly procrastinating.
BUT! Now, it is finally written. And it’s moments like this, when I finally sit back and look at the hectically scribbled bullet points in my notebook, that I realize 1. not only that there was nothing to worry about in the first place, but 2. how overwhelmingly lucky I am. I get to play games and talk about society/socio-political influences and then generally make-believe with a bunch of fellow semi-adults (FRIENDS, actually) over an over again—-until we find what we want to say, what feels meaningful to us.

In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.
