Description

Written and directed by Ping Chong and Sara Michelle Zatz, a Bethesda native, in collaboration with the featured performers, _Inside/Out _showcases the firsthand experiences of members of the disability community. Individual histories are interconnected in a script performed by the participants themselves, giving voice to individuals whose stories frequently go unheard.

_Inside/Out _is part of Ping Chong & Company’s Undesirable Elements, an ongoing series of oral history theatre works exploring key issues of identity in different communities. Each production is made with a partner organization in a host community, with local participants testifying about their real lives and experiences.

Renowned New York theatre company Ping Chong & Company was founded in 1975 to create and tour innovative works of theatre and art that explore the intersection of race, history, culture, and technology in the modern world. Inside/Out was commissioned by VSA – The International Organization on Arts and Disability. VSA is an affiliate of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
