Unscripted Learning presents a virtual play reading of FALLING by Deanna Jent. Deanna Jent’s FALLING boldly explores the dynamic and complicated reality of a family with an autistic young man. When a relative comes to visit, the entire family is thrown out of equilibrium, with everyone trying to balance what is best for the family and what is best for them. The play bravely speaks a truth about love and family and about hopes and dreams. It asks, “How do you love someone who is difficult to love?” Directed by Jacole Kitchen (La Jolla Playhouse) with stage manager Kira Vine, FALLING features Sylvia Enrique, Gary Kramer, Robert Malave, D. Candis Paule and Arielle Siler. All proceeds will benefit Unscripted Learning, which is a San Diego non-profit organization in partnership with National Comedy Theatre. Through its Connections program – UL uses the concepts of improvised theatre to teach social skills to kids and teens on the autism spectrum.
