The Newborn Story
Keta Newborn entered the world of theatre in 2006 after spending 12 years as a computer engineer and has already made a name for herself within the industry. What’s even more impressive is the fact that she has done it all since a brain tumor caused her to lose her memory, stripped her of the ability to walk, and forced her to learn how to write all over again. Despite the many challenges and battles Keta faced, she was “determined to live a fully functioning life” and has spent the last 10 years re-inventing herself.

After waking from a coma following a tragic car accident, Eliza becomes devoted to her hospitalized best friend, Grace, who remains comatose. But as time goes by, Eliza must come to terms with Grace’s condition and her own coming of age, while Grace must watch the world move around her, unable to speak, but with so much to that needs to be said.
