The solo show Stiffwritten and performed by Sherry Jo Ward, ends its virtual run with Synchronicity Theatre on Sunday (November 1). The comic drama deals with Ward’s diagnosis of Stiff Person syndrome, a rare degenerative disease that slowly inhibits her mobility. ArtsATL reviewer Alexis Hauk called it “a poignant, hilarious, autobiographical tour de force.” Stiff was easily the best of Synchronicity’s 4×4 series of solo shows by women. You’ll feel as if you’ve really been to the theater. Viewable via Vimeo.
