- interrupted by a stroke...

The  stark drama of Farley's stroke, and subsequent rocky recovery, is woven into the fabric of a funny, fresh, and musical cabaret. This unexpected  journey she takes us on is a unique story, yet full of universal truths. The realities and consequences of a stroke are brought to life as Farley cracks her life open and inspects it with bravery, music, and humor, inspiring grateful audiences along the way. A stroke of luck,  indeed.
