New York City
Theater by the Blind presents the NYC premiere of John Belluso’s The Rules of Charity, a dark comedy about how the disabled are treated.
Ike Schambelan directs.
Monty, a man with cerebral palsy who is confined to his wheelchair, must rely upon his daughter Loretta to care for him. When a young man sparks the idea of romance in Loretta’s life, she wants to move out of Monty’s home and conflicts escalate. The Rules of Charity suggests that the power love holds over us is contrary and contradictory – a combination of love and hate, cruelty and goodness.
Performances begin: March 2, 2024
