Rule Breaking: Disability As Performance
Inspired by Andrew Solomon’s book Far from the Tree, this participatory action research/performance project is part of the NYU Drama Therapy Program’s As Performance series and will be the featured performance of the series in November 2015 at the Provincetown Playhouse.
Rule Breaking is a play about a community of people coming together. People that know each other, that care for each other, that fear for each other. It explores the relationship between individuals with disabilities and their caretakers; its about mothers and sons, brothers and sisters, friends and companions; about sharing the struggles, pains, and joys of a life with disability; and about learning to break the rules a little bit.
