Emily O'brien's Theatre Experience

Many people are familiar with Emily O'brien's work on screen, but off screen she's established herself as an excellent stage actress.

She recently performed a reading of "The Trial of the Catsonville Nine," with her cast mates on the "Young and the Restless." They performed in Palm Springs at the Palm Theatre under the direction of Judith Chapman.

The play is about nine catholic nuns, nurses, priests and others that burned draft files and went to prison as a result. What makes this play so interesting is that many of the characters in the story are still alive. Emily watched a documentary about the people in preparation for her role.

She enjoyed being on the stage again.
