Stepping Stones is a play for young people with learning disabilities and their families and friends. This story goes from high noon hilltop heat haze to a snow-bound moonlit beach. Cynth, a young woman on a journey of change, is determined to find the fallen star for her Mam. Mam doesn’t want Cynth to go, but Mam decides that she will help Cynth and secretly follows her on her journey. Both Cynth and her Mam encounter interesting characters on their journey, and find the home stone, the stepping stone, and the star stone. In the end, they learn that everything must grow and change.
