A staged reading of a new play that lets us take a peek into the rehearsal process for an historical prestige drama, in which a movie star must play "disabled" while working with a Chicago‐based choreographer and an actor with a disability who was also up for the role.

What makes you and/or your work Indomitable?
Sarah: Everyone struggles with one aspect of their personality, physicality, or social condition, and it is hard to find a thoughtful discussion forum for these identity issues in our Internet-driven, impersonal age. By shining a light on how disadvantages mold us into the strong people we’re supposed to be, and by doing that within the community formed during a theatrical performance, I hope to provoke an honest, present, and prolonged discussion about the values we hold in the modern world. By asking my audience to step into the shoes of another person, I am asking them to imagine how a loss can be perceived as a gain. I think my work is indomitable because it creates conversation and community, and fosters an environment for expression and care.
