SPECIAL

Workshop Production/Play in Development

Created and Performed by Rachel Siegel

Directed by Jayne Atkinson

Co-produced by Rachel Siegel and WAM Theatre

Based on personal experience and inspired by interviews with mothers of children with special needs, SPECIAL follows one woman’s journey after she discovers she is pregnant with a child with Down syndrome. SPECIAL is a funny, unstinting, and ultimately inspiring look into the complexities and possibilities of love.

WAM Advisory Board member Jayne Atkinson directs this funny, unstinting, and ultimately inspiring look into the complexities and possibilities of love. “I am very honored to be part of Special,” Atkinson said. “It is a humorous, poignant, at times dark journey – an eye of the needle experience that will move us all deeply.”

A portion of box office proceeds will be donated to the following organizations:

March 19 – Berkshire Festival of Women Writers

March 18 and 20- CATA and Whole Children
