Courageous, daring, and unflinchingly honest, "Accidentally Brave" is an inspiring true story about discovering a new normal when the familiar world falls apart, a must-see examination of what it means to navigate a world with no certainty. Maddie Corman's profoundly personal play challenges perceptions, captivates audiences, and sparks an emotionally charged discussion that will leave you wondering: What would I do? The play premiered Off-Broadway in 2019, in an award-winning production directed by Kristin Hanggi and produced by Daryl Roth.
