Originally commissioned by the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University in 2014, A Fierce Kind of Love has been remounted for FringeArts’ High Pressure Fire Service series. Created by theater artists Suli Holum and David Bradley, the play chronicles the largely untold story of Pennsylvania’s intellectual disability rights movement and reveals how past activism has informed present-day issues. The encore production expands on interviews and research conducted for the 2016 premiere, and once again includes a cast of artists with intellectual disabilities.
