The Articulate Hand: Debbie Graham
When Debbie Graham was 23, she dove into a pool and broke her neck, mostly paralyzing her from the neck down. Thanks to the clever work of her doctors, she has regained some function. Narrated by herself, and portrayed by Andrew Dawson, Graham describes her unique new condition and the difficulties it presents. The Articulate Hand, a media-rich, on-stage portrayal of patients whose peculiar impairments—physiological and neurological—provide stunning insights into just how we humans are wired, and how adaptable that wiring may be.
