Ryan J. Haddad’s newest autobiographical play is a series of unforgiving vignettes about the strangers he encounters while navigating a city (and a world) not built for his walker and cerebral palsy. Directed by Jordan FeinDARK DISABLED STORIES probes implicit ableism and the assumptions we make about people we’ll never really know.
