What Is the Story of Falling?
Josh is a severely autistic 18-year-old with violent tendencies. His parents, Tami and Bill, have worked hard to create a safe and happy life for Josh and his younger sister, Lisa. But when Bill's mother elderly mother comes to visit, the family's carefully constructed routine is thrown into a tailspin. Each character is compelled to examine what he or she needs and wants out of life, and how Josh's presence will affect their future. Falling explores the joys and challenges of raising a child with disabilities.

Critics' Reviews

"Murney, who's best known for singing roles in shows like 'Wicked,' more than rises to the occasion of playing the frayed-nerved Tami, and Everidge ('Fat Camp') disappears into his role as Joshua, making the character in turn repellent and lovable."

Review by Stephan Lee from Entertainment Weekly

"Superbly staged by Lori Adams and wonderfully acted—Murney is gut-wrenching as a mother who sacrifices her happiness for a son who barely acknowledges her presence—'Falling' soars."

Review by Frank Scheck from The New York Post
