We will be presenting a live performance of A Demon on My Life on Zoom.
ABOUT A DEMON ON MY LIFE
Liz, a dancer in her thirties, has learned that her ME/CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) has reached a stage where she cannot expect it to get any better. As Liz and her husband, Mark, navigate the caregiver/caretaker relationship, they must deal with an illness doctors often misdiagnose and the world misunderstands.
Liz must find a way to define herself and not let doctors, others, or the disease her friend Katie refers to as “the demon on our lives” define her.
These performances have been adapted for online presentation.

We are raising funds to do a theatrical run in New York City when theaters are open again. At that time, we also want to have the funds to livestream select performances to a ME/CFS audience that would not be able to make a trip to a theater.
10% of all proceeds will go to Solve ME/CFS Initiative, an advocacy group for research, treatment and awareness.
They and other advocacy groups will be sharing the link so that people with ME/CFS can join us at no charge.
All of our talented performers will be paid
