Inspired by the true story of an inexplicable recovery from paraplegia by one of our own – a Vancouver teacher/dancer – after 13 years of life in a wheelchair, this is a story that baffles the medical/scientific community, arouses conflicting emotions in the disability community, and is celebrated by the religious community to which “Faith” belongs.
What happens when everything we believe to be true about ourselves or those closest to us us challenged by new information? If you aren’t religious, can you believe in a miracle? This new play explores the mystery of faith-based healing, and the consequences of life-changing transformation.
