Threshold





Threshold traces Amy Brenneman's journey raising her special needs daughter, drawn from her real-life experiences. Amy moves from a desperate struggle to conform her daughter to what is "e;normal"e; to a celebration of what makes her unique—and an embrace of neurodiversity in general. The events unfold during the current growing awareness and understanding of intellectual disability and the fight for disability rights.

Stylistically, I am working on a hybrid form that has the intimacy of a one-woman show—and Amy onstage is searingly direct, engaging, powerful, funny—but also the reach of a production, with an ensemble and heightened theatrical elements. As always, I strive to use these elements with economy and sophistication to serve the story. But they can also be abstract and evocative, as in a more experimental piece, to amplify the character, emotions and themes suggested by the language.
