Ruth’s multimedia, solo show takes us into the story of one woman’s courageous and soul-searching journey of adventure, discovery, and ultimate forgiveness. The memoir, although intensely personal, is universal in its dramatic and historic appeal.

Born in 1956, playwright Ruth Bieber, second daughter of post World War II immigrant parents, begins life in rural Alberta. The farm life, her Father’s dream, holds devastating consequences for the six-week old infant, her Mother, and ultimately the family as a whole.   

The show features salient highlights of Ruth's life as a woman, mother, professional, academic and world traveling adventurer, who happens to be blind.  Ruth invites audience members to wear nightshades during the show to fully experience her own vision loss.
