Synopsis:

“The story of Rachel Jobes, a disabled scholar who loses her identity, but not her life, after a violent attack in her home. Based on Dr. Janz’s lived experience, this play deals with the archetypal question: “Why do bad things happen to ‘good’ people?” and the related question of whether or not suffering can, in any sense, be ‘redemptive?'” (From the Kompany Family Theatre Website)
