Drive the Speed Limit
Drive the Speed Limit is a play about Eve, a chronically ill and fat teenager struggling to understand her body while navigating her artist mother and wacky grandmother’s opposing views of what it looks and feels like to be healthy. Moving between the doctor’s office, school, and home in the passenger seat, Eve sifts through her days while in pain. Shadow puppets animate what is going on in her body, making this battle visible. Everyone responds to Eve’s sickness in their own way. Her mother is unable to find her artistic spark. Her grandmother dives deeper into her faith. The doctors don’t accept her insurance.
