Confined to his wheelchair with cerebral palsy, Monty must rely upon his daughter Loretta to care for him. When a young man sparks the idea of romance in Loretta's life, she wants to move out of Monty's home and conflicts escalate. This strong, dark, funny play looks at how disabled people have been treated through the ages. The Rules of Charity suggests that the power love holds over us is contrary and contradictory – a combination of love and hate, cruelty and goodness. Disabled playwright John Belluso died tragically early last year at age 36, on the cusp of a promising career.
