This touching and funny play is the autobiographical account of one family’s journey to raise a son with autism. From the time that her child is diagnosed at age three, “Mom” leads us through the challenges and milestones of living with autism. We learn from her experiences, the impact this disability has on her marriage and family, while witnessing first hand the best and the worst of people who encounter her son in the outside world.
As a result of living with disability, not only does she come to a greater understanding and appreciation of the uniqueness of her child; she also gains greater depth as a woman and a mother.
“Nobody sees what goes on in families living with disability. To me, theater was the perfect vehicle to tell this story and give voice to all these families. I really wanted to open the doors, take down the walls of our house and say; “Come in, take a good look, see this for what it is: the struggle of my life along with the beauty and joy.”
–– Stacey Dinner-Levin, playwright
