A hilarious and heartfelt storytelling show that challenges what a “normal” family can look like.
In this laugh-out loud and heartbreaking solo show, award-winning actor, writer and storyteller Cory Thibert embodies his 19-year-old self as he uncovers the truth behind what sets his family apart. Through masterful storytelling and intimate reflection this coming-of-age story with-a-twist explores what constitutes “normal” in our world and how having parents with disabilities challenges what a family can look like.
