A rom-com set in a world where no character is typical. David is obsessed with being perceived as “normal”—thanks in part to his parents (Tibor Feldman, The Sopranos, and Jessica Walter, Arrested Development). When David is forced to attend an autism support group, he meets Sarah, who exudes positivity and confidence. But when Sarah goes home to meet David’s family, their romance is challenged. Keep The Change’s cast includes actors on the autism spectrum.
Discussion to follow with actress Samantha Elisofon; Caitlin McInerney, Program Director of Adaptations; and Alex LoPinto, Adaptations and HaDereckh Coordinator, JCC Manhattan Center for Special Needs.
Free admission, Registration recommended.
