About this show

In John Belluso's A Nervous Smile, a young girl with cerebral palsy is locked in the prison of her own body. Will her parents do the unthinkable, and abandon her to escape the bruising reality of her care? In this emotionally-charged drama, late playwright John Belluso raises fundamental questions about the nature of parenthood, love, desire and what it means to be a disabled person in America. Maria Mileaf directs.
