EMILY DRIVER’S GREAT RACE THROUGH TIME AND SPACE

Written by A.A. Brenner and Gregg Mozgala | Directed by Talleri A. McRae and Mickey Rowe

 

As a history-obsessed 12-year-old, Emily Driver uses her YouTube channel to celebrate landmark moments of activism and change. So when her request for a needed wheelchair is denied, she takes matters into her own hands – and launches into a time-travelling trip across the country where she meets trailblazing leaders from the past who have fought for equal rights. On the journey, she learns the power of speaking up, and how one voice can inspire others to create a more accessible world. In partnership with the National Disability Theatre, a team of actors, writers, and designers with disabilities brings this inventive and original story to life.
