* * *
A World without Martha is an unflinching yet compassionate memoir of how one sister’s institutionalization for intellectual disability in the 1960s affected the other, sending them both on separate but parallel journeys shaped initially by society’s inability to accept difference and later by changing attitudes towards disability, identity, and inclusion.
Victoria Freeman is a writer, theatre artist, educator, and public historian.
Nicholas Herd is an accomplished actor and host of the Disability Channel’s Keeping It Real With Nick.
