March 16 - April 16
It takes a village, and then some. For Tami Martin, raising her 18-year-old severely autistic son Josh, is not only a full time job, it's a labor of love. But Josh's increasingly violent outbursts and pressure from her family threaten to drive Tami's efforts and her sanity to the brink. Interrobang is proud to close its FLESH AND BLOOD Season with this Chicago Premiere.
