Since 1985

Wry Crips exists to nuture the neglected dreams & talents of disabled women. We are open to all disabled women who want the opportunity to work & learn with other disabled women.

Founded in 1985 by Patty Overland, Judy Smith and Dr. Laura Rifkin, Wry Crips' first performance was in March 1986 and was attended by over 200 enthusiastic women.

Currently led by Artistic Director Michaela Goldhaber, we work as an ensemble to create collages of spoken word poetry, music, and dance that tell funny, sexy, and relevant stories about disabled women's lives.
