"Falling" Paints Portrait of Life with Autism

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- St. Louis audiences are the first to see "Falling," Deanna Jent's new play about a family living with the struggles of autism.

Jent's drama — inspired by her 17-year-old autistic son and her family's day-to-day life in the vortex of what she calls "extreme parenting" — is a gripping piece of theater, emotionally wrenching and theatrically astute. It has, as they say, legs. It also has a keen mind and a warm, though troubled, heart.
