To Kill A Kelpie, a play by Matthew McVarish, a Scottish playwright, actor, and musician, about two brothers who never spoke about the sexual abuse they both endured as 6-year-old boys, was inspired by the Stop the Silence campaign, performed to sold-out audiences in Scotland, and brought to and performed in the U.S. (San Francisco, Chicago, and DC) with rave reviews from theatre-goers through a grant from HHS and matching support by Adam and Partners Investment Advisors.
