off the WALL Productions in Carnegie is o presenting Laura Brienza’s Scared of Sarah as the second offering of its 2015-16 season with the gracious support of The Arts for Autism Foundation of Pittsburgh,
Lily’s pregnant, and her husband Sam is stuck in a panic that rings entirely true: they owe more than a small fortune in school loans – how will they support a baby? Then the couple begins to face an even graver but all-too-real possibility: what if their unborn child turns out to be like Lily’s older sister, Sarah?
Sarah is autistic—not so far on the spectrum that she is unable to care for herself, but still very difficult to handle and know, processing the universe in such a seemingly unfathomable way.
Sarah’s employed, lives independently, has hobbies, and by all means looks “normal,” but she’s not quite neuro-typical. She’s the kind of person that one might interact with every day, not realizing her brain is a little different. What, Lily wonders, if our baby can’t stand to be held or touched, the way Sarah was? What if I don’t love my own child?
