Current Projects:

  • Belle’s on Wheels is an autobiographical performance depicting Clarity Belle’s journey through recovery from a life-altering injury to a new appreciation of her life.  This personal piece of theatre addresses cultural myths and stereotypes that have traditionally separated persons with disabilities from the “mainstream.”
  • Tail Tell Tale is a one-woman performance … an intimate conversation shared by a woman who claims she “grew into a mermaid.”

Both performances run less than one hour, are appropriate for high school – adult audiences, and involve minimal technical requirements.  Presenters must provide a venue which is wheelchair accessible to performer and audience members.
