$5 from every full price ticket to the new Off-Broadway play Falling will be donated to the organization Autism Speaks throughout October, producers Terry Schnuck, James & Catherine Berges, Crystal Beuerlein, and Michael & Noemi Neidorff have announced.
Lori Adams directs the work, which is written by Deanna Jent. It will begin performances at the Minetta Lane Theatre on September 27 in advance of an October 15 opening.
In Falling, a visit from a relative throws off the equilibrium of a family and its 18-year-old son who has autism.
The design team features John C. Stark (set design), Tristan Raines (costume design), Julie Mack (lighting design), and Raymond Schilke (sound design).
