After a successful and critically acclaimed workshop run in the summer of 2018 in Dallas at Theatre Three, emerging playwright, Jessica Cavanagh, along with Dallas based producer Bren Rapp, took her autobiographical play about motherhood under the most extreme circumstances, Self-Injurious Behavior, to New York for a twelve performance AEA showcase run at Urban Stages in April of 2019. It was there it caught the attention of veteran actor/director/producer Ronnie Marmo and Tony Winning star of stage and screen, Joe Mantegna who are now bringing the world premiere full production to North Hollywood and Marmo's Theatre 68

Self-Injurious Behavior is based on Jessica Cavanaghs story of love, loss, and survival. When severely autistic eleven- year-old Benjamin becomes a danger to himself, his divorced mother, Summer, makes the excruciating decision to admit him to a home for special needs kids. Seeking comfort, she visits her sisters in Portland who desperately and hilariously attempt to distract her with a weekend of escapism at the local Renaissance faire. Summer spends the weekend plagued by haunting dreams of her son and memories of her marriage, and is forced to face her need to let go. With her bittersweet blend of honesty and humor, Jessica Cavanagh has captured, in telling her own story, a voice that speaks to the qualities within us all to cope with our own unimaginable and to continue to live. This is a story not only about autism and motherhood, but about the resilience of the human spirit.
