Director Steve Wilson thinks the classic story of Jewish tradition and the forces that pull it apart speaks to audiences and Phamaly's actors alike in universally inspirational ways: "It touches on the collective truth that everyone will ultimately leave the comfort of 'home' and venture off into the sometimes forbidding and unpredictable world," he says. "These transitions can be particularly challenging for those with disabilities and their loved ones and caretakers."
