About the Play 
Successful lawyer, fiery activist and self-described “bedpan crip” Elora Dixon quite literally makes a powerful impact when she protests a public appearance by Julian Summer, a celebrity champion of the right-to-die movement. But this first meeting of two passionate souls on opposite sides of a painfully divisive issue has consequences that neither has anticipated.

You May Also Want to See: Tommy, which offers a very different take on the themes of disability, disillusion and self-discovery.
