When Kitty McKay was growing up in Merrimack, she was a fun loving child with many friends, a confident teenager, prom queen and valedictorian. In college, she was a Cum Laude college student, and later, a compassionate teacher and a doting a young mother.
When Kitty's "natural high" became the "dangerous high" of bi-polar disorder, her life changed dramatically. She endured the personal, professional, and financial side-effects of a life out of control, until 1995, when her recovery began in earnest, and she regained her "natural high."
Now Kitty's mission is to share her story with others. Kitty has written a one-woman play, which she will present at the library on Wednesday, January 25, at 7 pm. Kitty has a performed other one-woman shows as Abigail Adams, Florence Nightingale, and Confederate spy Belle Boyd, but "Dangerously High" is her personal story brought to life as a message of hope to the mentally ill and the people who love them.
