"Best New Play" nominee St. Louis Theater Circle

The life of a quadriplegic (paralyzed from the chest down.) Together the Katie "before" and "after" her injury laugh, cry, curse and grow. The past influences the present and legal pursuits judge everything and everyone. 

A true account of survival because life is a bitch! But there are positive and negative ways to react. Every day we have a choice. We can be positive and try to find inspiration or we can give up. Katie is no martyr, and she doesn't sugarcoat the difficulty of a spinal cord injury, paralysis, doctors, nurses, occupational therapy, physical therapy, dependency, caregivers, personal care attendants, insurance, dating, sexuality and intimacy, healthy coping mechanisms, depression, anxiety, medication, anger, psychotherapy, counseling, reaching out, parent and sibling relationships, guilt, a 10 year personal injury lawsuit, lawyers, judges, trials, money, healthcare, finding work, writing, sharing, creating and just fucking living!

Everything in this play is true and was said. People can be kind and they can be real assholes too.

But people - please, find healthy ways to hang in there. Don't give in or give up. Yes, get mad, cry, curse and go down but there is one thing that can bring us back up.......hope. That saves me every day. I do have hope, sometimes it's a struggle to find, but it is always there for the picking.

Katie, preinjury was mostly the same person I am today. (My high school friends say I haven't changed a bit.) This play will let you in on my journey and is a full self-disclosure of how I have changed. The life lessons are not easy, but I love the wisdom learned.

"Roll With It!" the play written by Katie R. Banister & Michelle Zielinski

Based on the memoire "On A Roll" by Katie Rodriguez Banister, Jo Lena Johnson, Andrew Szanton. Available on Amazon or my website

The Shade

Life needs light to see so clear

Deprivation instills fear

You can't keep someone in the shade

They'll whither choke & die

How can they grow?

How will they know

What it's like to try?

Protection by prejudice Is not the way to teach

Try understanding and compassion

Extend beyond your reach

Cultivate your being

Don't put yourself above

Shed beams of light

Flee from fright

Because everyone needs love

- Katie Rodriguez Banister
