Restart Stages at Lincoln Centeer presents Dark Disabled Stories by Ryan Haddad, directed by Jordan Fein on Thursday, August 5, 2021 at 7:00pm at The Isabel and Peter Malkin Stage at Hearst Plaza W 65th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY, United States, 10023.

What do a crosstown bus, a bathroom stall, and Gramercy Park have in common? Not very much. But they're all places where writer and performer Ryan J. Haddad must face the messy contradictions of his proudly disabled life. There's not always a punchline, darlings, and the truth is often more complicated than the empowered narratives we create for ourselves. Haddad's newest autobiographical play, Dark Disabled Stories, is a series of stirring vignettes about the strangers he encounters while navigating a city (and a world) not built for his walker and cerebral palsy. By turns raunchy, hilarious, and unforgiving, Dark Disabled Stories probes implicit ableism and the assumptions we make about people we'll never really know.
