Type: Text

Sonya tells her story about growing up with poor vision that went undiagnosed until she was seven years old. Combining memoir, theatre and stand-up comedy, The Wheelchair on My Face is a delightful story of a myopic child which shows us how we can better the world even if we cannot see the world.
