“Just because you don’t believe something doesn’t mean it isn’t true”
An inexplicable recovery changes the lives of a community. After years living with paraplegia, Faith can suddenly walk, and believes she has been healed by a miracle. But, what about those closest to her? What about her friends and family? What happens when everything we believe to be true about ourselves, or those closest to us, is challenged by new information? A new play inspired in part by the true story of the mysterious recovery by a young Vancouver woman who lived with paraplegia for 13 years, Act of Faith asks, if you aren’t religious, can you still believe in a miracle?
Act of Faith features a mixed-ability cast, and explores wheelchair movement in unique, never before seen ways. With a cast of some of Vancouver’s most exciting performers, including Emily Grace Brook, who lives with paraplegia, and appears in a pivotal lead role, this new play explores the mystery—and controversy—of faith-based healing, and the consequences of a life-changing transformation.
