The Real Me at Somerville

The Real Me

April 5 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 pm
Free

April 5th  we are performing “The Real Me” again with some new actors at The Arts At The Armory in Somerville. We want to bring awareness, during Autism Awareness Month, about families with children that have a disability.

The Real Me is a dramatic one act play by Joseph Sorrentino that gives a rare glimpse into a family who has a child with a disability. You, as the interviewer, will hear of the multi-faceted journey of Nancy, a 24-year-old woman with a developmental disability, and her parents, Ann and Don. This compelling story derives from interviews of 8 families conducted by the playwright. Our intern, Erin MacArthur, will star in this original play and we have two wonderful actors playing her parents, Wendy Feign and Timothy Leahy.

The play will be performed at the Arts at the Armory Somerville April 5th and at The Luna Theater in Lowell April 1st.

We will have a reception 6:30-7:30pm with a fun raffle,  Koshari Mama will be catering the event. If you haven’t tried this Egyptian Street Food, vegetarian or none vegetarian love it.

The playwright and cast will be at the event for a talk-back session.
