Review: Falling

Falling is an apt metaphor for life with challenges of many types. It is also the name of a new play, being presented Off-Broadway and regionally, about a family.

It presents the unique challenges of being a family affected with a condition such as severe autism, and raises powerful questions and doubts that need to be discussed.

For me, art is so incredibly powerful because we can explore so much with it. Falling made me squirm. It made me sigh with relief, then gasp. It made me THINK.

That is what great art is. It asks tough questions that are uncomfortable to answer. It makes you doubt yourself and what you think you would do. It makes you cry.

Falling is a powerful and much-needed piece of theater. I highly recommend it for mature audiences interested in family and disability issues.
