Weights is a powerful performance that utilises prose, poetry and music to tell the real-life story of Lynn Manning. A passionate and inspiring one man show, with live music accompaniment, Weights is about a man who has overcome tremendous obstacles in life. Lynn grew up as an impoverished black child in the foster care system of South Central Los Angeles, the son of an abusive father and alcoholic mother. At the age of 23 he was shot in a senseless bar fight, losing his sight completely. The show traces Manning's ultimate transcendence of the senseless violence that changed his life, and his courageous personal journey from being 'black' to being 'blind'. Determined to pursue his dreams, he has now become a successful playwright, actor, world-class athlete and dedicated volunteer.
