“This show is worth your time whether or not you have any experience with disabilities–perhaps even more so if you don’t. Why? Because it will change the way you see disability when you encounter it. These women tell their stories not in a plea for sympathy, but for simple understanding, and as with all great art, these stories make you see things in a new way.”

- Kristopher Haines, The Crippled Critic

Six women gathered for ten weeks to talk about their lives and their families.
They explored their experiences through conversation and through writing,
sharing their hopes and admitting their fears.
These are their stories. 

FIERCE LOVE is a testament to the tenacity and heart that guide many parents and how these often unnoticed children make a huge impact on our lives, as they and their families make their way in this world.

A Healing Opportunity for Local Female Veterans 

Well Arts Institute in partnership with Returning Veteran’s Project and Wise Comfort and Council to produce a 10 week writing workshop exploring the experience of female service members.

Returning Veterans Project, with Wise Counsel and Comfort and the, Well Arts Institute are inviting women to continue their healing through a process of writing and performance. 

During 10 weeks of writing, the participants will explore their experiences during safe nurturing writing workshops led by experienced Well Arts facilitators who will share theatre writing tools and techniques through a framework in which the participants’ stories can be told. After the 10 weeks of writing, with input and approval from the writers, their stories will be combined and edited into a final script. Well Arts will then hire professional theater artists (directors, actors, designers) to present staged readings. 

We are currently looking for people who would like to participate in this ambitious project.

Wise Comfort and Council, who will be co-producing the project, will have qualified staff available throughout the process to support the writers as they bring their experiences from page to stage. 

Interested writers should contact Lynne Nesbit by email at: lynnejoy@gmail.com
