About It’s Fine, I’m Fine
A one-woman show written and performed by Stephanie Everett and nurtured at Northern Stage, It’s Fine, I’m Fine follows Steph as she comes to grips with a new normal after four career-ending concussions as a varsity soccer player at Dartmouth. Funny, heartbreaking, and human, It’s Fine, I’m Fine advocates for compassion in the face of all of our invisible struggles. This play was a fan favorite in 2018’s New Works Now and won the Best Festival Debut at New York’s United Solo Festival in 2019.
