It took Donna Purnell over 30 years to tell her parents about her special talent, one she and her husband had kept secret for years.
At age 47, Donna, a hockey Mom, teacher and CCD instructor told her parents and brother that she was escape artist “Alexanderia the Great,” and she’d be performing an escape in her home town of Dedham to raise money for Dedham Athletics.
“They really didn’t know what to say,” she laughs. “The only other person on this planet who knew besides me and Bill had been my sister-in-law.”
