When a nonverbal, highly intelligent, cerebral palsied 8 year old realizes that something might one day happened to his parents, he “orders” backup. Woody always plans ahead. His sister Ann, heeding the call for her magical birth, embarks on an extraordinary lifetime adventure to fulfill this order, while navigating the course of her own dreams and destiny. This true, and astonishing, story celebrates humanity and the way we all connect along the way.

LA Splash - Recommended

"...Director John Shepard helms the production with a sure but gentle hand while expertly treading the fine line between reality and maudlin sentiment. Clearly, this tender story has special meaning to playwright/solo actor Ann Talman, who lived it and now shares her experiences with the audience. It is a joy to see her transition with ease and occasional humor from one character to another."

"...In her one-woman show - currently having its West Coast premiere at Ensemble Studio Theatre/LA in Atwater Village - actress Ann Talman chronicles the joys and hardships of growing up as the younger sister of a bright and feisty non-verbal quadriplegic whom she adored with a fierce determination. As family legend has it, her 8-year-old brother Woody feared that if something happened to his parents he would need someone to take care of him. He began making motions over his mother's tummy and father's lap, as if he were conjuring up a spell. In 1957, Ann was born. And on the Polaroid photo taken at her birth her mother emphatically wrote the words, "Woody's Order!" "
