Local actress Sherry Jo Ward chronicles her struggle with Stiff Person Syndrome, an incredibly rare disease which impairs her mobility and causes her unexplained pain. Part stand up comedy, part PowerPoint presentation, Stiff is a unique and engaging first person account of what it means to re-assess one’s own goals and ambition when confronted with a life altering diagnosis.

Stiff was the unanimous standout at the Festival of Independent Theatres (FIT) in Dallas, and the great demand for more performances led Ward with Risk Theater Initiative to The Studio at Stage West. Stiff recently won recognition for Best Actress and Best New Play from the Dallas-Fort Worth Theatre Critics Forum.
