Stumble Through

Chris needs to secure a large financial grant to save Rattatat, the disabled theatre company he runs. That means writing a new sketch comedy with an all disabled cast - including two of his ex-girlfriends - while struggling in secret with his Cerebral Palsy. To succeed, Chris and his unique community must rely on each other to redefine the word “ability” and remember there’s more to being disabled than just great parking.

Writer Biography - Jeremy Palmer

Jeremy Palmer died once. But he totally came back. His temporary death during a botched heart surgery left him technically a cyborg and pointed him toward a career working in the disability community, culminating when Jeremy Palmer Day became an actual thing in Denver. Seeing how his near death affected his family left him feeling guilty, and thus fascinated with writing about guilt and how it manifests in unexpected ways. Jeremy’s script, Stumble Through (under option) was awarded the USC Jay Roach Endowed Scholarship and his thesis script, The Valley of Dry Bones received the Alfred P. Sloan Screenwriting Grant in 2017.
