The Marsh San Francisco kicks off the New Year with an extension of 2017 United Solo Theatre Festival winner “My Stroke of Luck.” Not everyone knows that the average person loses 1.9 million brain cells every minute a stroke goes untreated, but Diane Barnes did. As a radiologist who diagnoses strokes, Barnes did not deal with having a stroke very well; it was more than 20 hours before she went to the hospital. “My Stroke of Luck” follows Barnes as she recounts her experience of having a stroke, her path to recovery, and more. A spellbinding and funny look at love, family, and seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Barnes shares the story of a single adoptive mother of special needs and gifted sons and how she forges a new identity after a debilitating change. The Theatre Bay Area recommended production “My Stroke of Luck,” is directed by Rebecca Fisher and developed with David Ford.
