“Falling” is the title of the play I wrote that is now in rehearsal.
“Falling” is also an apt description of the exhilirating and terrifying process it has been, watching the words jump from page to stage.
The terror of falling comes from the unknown: Will I look like a fool? Will it hurt? Can I trust someone to catch me?
Trust comes from relationship. I can let my script “fall” into the arms of this director and cast because I know their work. They tell stories truthfully, passionately.
In the play, the Martin family also experience moments of terror and questions of trust. Raising a son with severe autism has shaped the dynamics of their relationships – with each other, with “outsiders” and with God.
For me, it is ultimately a story about loving someone who is hard to love. While the specifics of this play involve a person with autism, the situation can be found in almost any family.
I hope you can join us for this. Tickets are available online at our website: www.mustardseedtheatre.com
