MS
by The Broad Theatre

Aug. 01 - Aug. 24
Saturdays

Maby is studying to be an actor when she realizes she is having trouble speaking and feels unusual tingling in her legs. Ever the rule follower, she immediately starts seeing a neurologist and has many unexpected first- times, from her first MRI to her first second, third and fourth second opinions. Maby thought she would spend her summer dealing with her clingy boyfriend, tolerating her less than perfect roommates and enduring a crappy job, but she quickly learns that she has no idea what the rest of the summer holds for her, much less her future.

The Broad Theatre is proud to present their inaugural production (and world premiere) of MS by Molly Fonseca. MS was previously performed as part of FronteraFest Short Fringe Festival and was named “Best of the Fest” in 2010. MS is a solo play that explores a young woman’s journey of accepting a life-altering diagnosis and offers a turn toward hope.
