“The actors in a play about chronic fatigue syndrome performed July 15 at Missouri State University are all healthy. The playwright, Rivka Solomon, who lives in the Boston area, is not.” This paragraph introduces an article by Sarah Okeson published Aug 8 by the Springfield (MO) News Leader (“Tiredness you don’t get over”).
The article highlights the first performance of “I Represent: Invisible No More,” and goes on to provide helpful information about ME/CFS. It also provides contact and meeting information for the local FM/CFS support group.
Any support group looking for an opportunity to raise awareness in their community can get the script from Rivka and find a local theater group to produce it. (Student actors, especially, love opportunities to act.)
To Get a Copy of the Script, email Rivka
