From the Director

I am honored to be sharing in the next steps of the production process for this very important piece of theatre. This piece, by the extremely talented Gaven Bell, highlights the often-overlooked ableism in our society, even within communities that we expect to feel inclusive. My hope for the next steps in Gaven’s process is that as she grows the scope of the writing, future productions will open more eyes to the conversations that need to continue to happen in congress with those who are impacted by ableist language and sentiments. 

Listen Up!
