Time To Put My Socks On is a romantic comedy from the guy’s point of view!
This show asks that timeless question: Does love conquer all? And it also raises some unique questions: Can a guy with cerebral palsy have a lasting and satisfying relationship with a “normal” woman? Is Marc even willing to find out? Not if he has to get Linda’s help with putting his socks on for the rest of his life….
This original play explores the complexities of a relationship between a disabled man and his non-disabled partner through a hilarious, raucous, and deeply daring presentation of masculinity, sexuality, disability, and relationships.
