FALLING presented by New City Players

Performing at New City Players @ The Vanguard (Oct 10 - Oct 27)

Runtime: 1 Hour 15 Minutes


Written by:  Deanna Jent

Directed by:  Jessica Schulte

Based on the playwright’s own experiences, Falling boldly explores the dynamic and complicated reality of a family with a son, named Josh, who has autism. When a relative comes to visit, the entire family is thrown out of equilibrium, with each of them trying to balance what is best for the family, themselves, and Josh. The play poignantly speaks to the challenge of loving someone who is difficult to love. 

RUN TIME: 75 minutes and is presented with NO intermission

POST SHOW DISCUSSION: Please plan to join us after each performance for a discussion with the cast and creative team members, as well as community guests and professionals in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
