Audience responses are then shown live on the video screen via Twitterfall. By sharing their own experiences with the experiences portrayed in The GRAFT, the show becomes both personal and universal, demonstrating that we are often not as alone or unique as we may think, and that healing is accessible to everyone, no matter how far they’ve fallen from grace.
The GRAFT stands for the five songs that make up the second act, and the five stages of the healing process outlined in the show:
The goal of The GRAFT is not to give anyone the answers to their life’s problems. The goal of The GRAFT is to give people questions to ask themselves in order to lead them on their own path to finding hope, healing, and happiness.
