Inspired by a popular Raymond Carver story, “Cathedrals” is about a young husband who, through a strange, almost psychedelic experience with a blind man, is able to see his marriage from a new perspective.
Our mission was to raise awareness for actors with disabilities, which is why we cast a blind actor to play a lead role and donated to organizations like Theater By the Blind as part of our fundraising. Here's an article I wrote for the American Federation for the Blind about the project.
