A Note about FALLING from Deanna Jent:
As the Mom of an 18-year old son with severe autism and 21-year old neurotypical twins, I’ve learned the fine art of walking on eggshells while watching for the sky to fall. I wrote a play, Falling, which exposes the family dynamics of loving someone who is hard to love.
FALLING: Family’s not the most important thing: it's everything.
A New Play by Deanna Jent, directed by Lori Adams
At the Minetta Lane Theatre - 18 Minetta Lane
(one block south of West 3rd Street, just off of Sixth Avenue)

Falling boldly explores the dynamic and complicated reality of a family with an autistic young man. When a relative comes to visit, the entire family is thrown out of equilibrium, with everyone trying to balance what is best for the family and what is best for them. The play bravely speaks a truth about love and family and about hopes and dreams. It asks "How do you love someone who is difficult to love?" Lori Adams directs a cast that features Daniel Everidge (Grease, Fat Camp), Celia Howard, Daniel Pearce (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee on Broadway), Jacey Powers (Our Town) and Julia Murney (Wicked, Drama Desk nominee for Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party).
“A gripping piece of theatre, emotionally wrenching and theatrically astute…Like many other plays (Awake and Sing!, A Thousand Clowns, The Three Sisters), it’s a thoughtful portrait of a family struggling to hold on in particular and challenging circumstances.  You don’t want to miss it…” - St. Louis Post-Dispatch 
“It will kick your guts.” - Riverfront Times 
“It’s a compelling, gripping evening of real, intense, drama…the most powerful, moving new play I’ve seen in years.” - KDHX Radio
