This is the Point is a joyous and unflinching portrait of four individuals whose lives have been shaped, in part, by cerebral palsy.

Dan and Christina are parents searching for the best way their disabled son Bruno can share his voice. Tony is a non-verbal adult who won’t shut up. Liz, his long-time romantic partner, is grappling with the judgements that society makes about their love and sexuality.

This is the Point addresses misconceptions related to disability by sharing the ordinary and extraordinary stories of these two real-life couples. With a verbatim theatre quality and physical comedy delivery, a series of staged conversations and theatrical re-enactments—from getting Bruno ready for school in the morning, to Tony breaking up with his computer because he doesn’t like the simulated voice—This is the Point debates questions of representation, the nature of companionship, and how people of different abilities can connect with each other on equal terms.
