Queens Theatre and The Museum, Arts & Culture Access Consortium (MAC) present a virtual reading of EMILY DRIVER’S GREAT RACE THROUGH TIME AND SPACE - the story of a young girl who has to travel through the space-time continuum to fight the forces of ableism and save disability history!

As a history-obsessed 12-year-old, Emily Driver uses her YouTube channel to celebrate landmark moments of activism and change. So when her request for a needed wheelchair is denied, she takes matters into her own hands – and launches into a time-travelling trip across the country where she meets trailblazing leaders from the past who have fought for equal rights. On the journey, she learns the power of speaking up, and how one voice can inspire others to create a more accessible world.

This event is part of Queens Theatre's celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, raising funds to benefit Queens Theatre's Theatre For All initiative.
