"Crippled" that's what the guys in Tony's small community of Shale Harbour NL used to call him growing up. The name stuck.
Years later, Tony finds himself on the St. John's NL waterfront at a crossroad. Tired of living with a disability, of being 'the cripple', and still grieving the death of his same sex partner three years earlier, Tony believes there's only one way to escape a life he no longer wants to live.
His mind is made up, until a stranger appears with other plans.
In “Crippled”, playwright Paul David Power shares his true experiences of growing up with a physical disability and grief after loss.
“Crippled” is a story about love, death, life and redemption. You will laugh, you will cry and you will walk away with a new perspective about life and what matters.
"Crippled" premieres at the Resource Centre for the Arts February 2018.
