        RealWheels Presents Act of Faith

        Realwheels is an award-winning theatre company producing performances that deepen audiences’ understanding of the disability experience.

        Act of Faith is a story of belief, conviction, and controversy. What happens when everything we believe to be true about ourselves or those closest to us is challenged by new information? 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.
