Step 9, an audio play written by Edgerton award winning playwright and Wise & Shine writer Jack Canfora has been released as a theatrical podcast. Jack and his theater company, New Normal Rep, are committed to democratizing theater by bringing great content wherever we are and they deliver beautifully with Step 9. This audio play tells the story of Emily, a woman wrestling with the implications of prosecuting the man who raped her in college 30 years ago. Is she willing to relive the horror of that night in the pursuit of justice?
Step 9 is a deeply entertaining, thoughtful and healing walk through how we deal with the aftermath of trauma. With humor and beautifully written family relationships, it meets our woundedness and guides us towards wholeness.
