What do you do when your very full life is stopped cold with a stroke? Farley felt she had to figure out how to pick up and move forward. Her identity was profoundly connected to being a singer and actress. Writing this show - before she even knew if she could do it at all - was a risk, but also a creative form of therapy. With all the creative work she tackled, her brain was healing. And more importantly, she had purpose and joy in her life again after such a debilitating event. With her wry wit and own unique way of looking at the world, Farley Cadena winds us through the last harrowing year of her life, and long ago memories, with songs, stories, and cathartic laughter. Whether a stroke happened to you, or a family member, we often feel helpless. But there is a whole world of family and friends who will reach out their hands to you with love and help. We are all in this together. What a stroke of luck.
