MAGIX ISLAND follows the story of a Blind young girl named Claudette who is trying to live her life as independently as possible, however the family has to move to an island because her father will be working for the King. Besides her mother being overly protective of Claudette, the islanders are not very welcoming of persons with disabilities, isolating them from society. The King also has a son who is blind but he isn’t very accepting of the young man. Some persons with disabilities are having to mask their disability in order to provide for themselves. Claudette will meet other persons with disabilities along the way. They will gather together as a team to advocate for their rights and for the freedom of the unicorns.  This play shares some of the realism of some of the struggles of living with a disability, but this play is also filled with fantasy.
