Tuesday, September 17 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Ages 12-19: What is it like to fall in love with someone who you can never touch? For Stella Grant and Will Newman, both patients with cystic fibrosis, their medical condition means that their lives are dictated by routines, self-control, and rigid boundaries that prevent physical contact. However, their instant attraction tempts Stella into throwing aside all of the rules and boundaries that are meant to keep them both alive. Children under 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
