“Overcome” at Cotuit Center for the Arts
In this autobiographical journey infused with music and movement, celebrated actress Amy Brenneman (Judging Amy, Private Practice, The Leftovers, Heat, The Old Man) takes us along as she learns how to become a true ally to her daughter Charlotte, born with a rare chromosomal abnormality.
Years of testing and assessment yield frustratingly few results, leading Brenneman to surrender to a new path forward. Created with longtime collaborator Sabrina Peck, Overcome is funny, poignant, and powerful, taking a bold look at preconceptions of disability, what we consider “normal,” and the promise/challenge of a truly inclusive society.
