‘Sit’ tracks a blind girl’s journey toward her dream at Promenade Playhouse

Inspired by the true story of Theatre by the Blind actress Sheila Walker who also stars, “Sit” is an original that play follows Tamara, a young blind girl, as she journeys through a world she cannot see, but chooses bravely to explore. Tamara must maneuver around her overprotective father who knows nothing about raising a blind daughter. As she attempts to find her footing, she must decide which outstretched arms to lean on. Her well-meaning teacher and her strong-willed sister both want to help, but is it the help she needs? Can she break away, and what will she discover about herself and the world outside her window?

Written and directed by Lindsay Nyman, the play is presented by CRE Outreach and Theatre by the Blind, the country’s only theater troupe composed entirely of blind actors and stars Sean Gorecki, Leela Kazerouni, Luz Madrigal, Virginia Romero, Robert Smith, Torri Taite and Sheila Walker.
