Misunderstood is a one-act musical about Eliot Bishop. We experience his struggles and joys while living with disabilities. As the musical's narrative unfolds, Eliot as an adult reveals to us phases of his childhood. Through the perspective of his dad Alex and his life-long friend Sam Ashford, we discover more facets of Eliot. Eliot exemplifies the joys and disappointments we all feel. Through song, dance and laughter we see Eliot living life beyond his handicap.
While Misunderstood is one man's experience, the musical also speaks to anyone coping with physical or emotional challenges. The show's hope is to re-examine our misconceptions about people with disabilities or anyone who feels Misunderstood.
