Tim J. Lord’s On Every Link a Heart Does Dangle; or Owed is having a limited run until May 19 at The Lark. The recipient of the Apothetae & Lark Playwriting Fellowship — the first national award supporting a disabled playwright — Lord reimagined Oedipus with a disability at its center.

Lord shifted the focus of the play from the king to a young woman who is poor and has suffered from discrimination due to her disability. He uses the classic myths of history to upend common disability myths in this play.
