Written and performed by Stéphanie Morin-Robert
BLINDSIDE is an eye-opening, multi-award-winning comedy about resilience, empathy, and self-acceptance. In a feat of riveting comedy, one-eyed cancer survivor and MOTH storytelling champion, Stéphanie Morin-Robert, recounts her life as a feisty 7-year-old who wields her glass-eye as a weapon. With the help of her cat, a pair of sunglasses, and an undesirable superpower, she soon discovers that she has what it takes to face her tormenting bullies at her new school and come to terms with her disability.
This powerful show combines comedy, storytelling, puppetry, multimedia, and audience participation.
