Set in 1968, the 2012 Play Festival winner takes place at a black tie fundraiser for people with disabilities. The honoree is Agnes Sheehan, a quadriplegic, who is escorted by her able-bodied sister, Theresa. The siblings make the most of the celebration until unforeseen events force them to examine how fragile the bond is between them. Infused with a great deal of humor, this moving story explores the true meaning of sacrifice.

The cast, a diverse group of actors, those with disabilities and those without, includes Lori Hammel, David Harrell, John McGinty, Rachel Pickup, Roland Sands, and Ed Setrakian.

*Don't miss special opening night on July 13th! The package includes a pre-show party at Ursino, the new four-star restaurant at Kean, a ticket to the play, and a champagne/dessert reception following the show, all for only $45.

Award-winning playwright Kathryn Grant's The Good Counselor set box office records at Premiere Stages in 2010. Now she returns with a provocative new play celebrating those who refuse to yield to labels or limitations.
