Theatre Too at Theatre Three presents Self Injurious Behavior, written by Jessica Cavanagh and directed by Marianne Galloway.

When severely autistic, eleven-year-old Benjamin becomes a danger to himself, his divorced mother, Summer, must make the excruciating decision to admit him to a home for special needs kids. Seeking comfort, she visits her sisters in Portland who desperately and hilariously attempt to distract her with a weekend of escapism at the local renaissance faire. Plagued by haunting dreams of her son and memories of her marriage, Summer is finally forced to face the need to let go.

For anyone who has cared for a child with ASD it can be all-consuming and exhausting. In this very personal account of a woman’s struggle to raise her autistic son, we are reminded that life never turns out the way you plan it. Through every effort to do what is best for her son, she discovers that loss, sacrifice and little leaps of faith can lead to the life that maybe you didn’t plan, but the life you love.

Self Injurious Behavior is a 90-minute play with no intermission, written by and stars Jessica Cavanagh (Summer), and includes Ian Ferguson (Jake/Sebastian), Jennifer Kuenzer (Sage), Danielle Pickard (Harmony), Desiree Fultz (Lynn/Gina), Madison Calhoun (Libby/Ashley), and Jude Seagrest (Benjamin).
