Haddad still doesn’t know why the man in Manhattan’s Industry Bar burst into tears when he saw him.

He asked the man why, but no explanation was forthcoming.

Perhaps the man was drunk, but this and a clutch of other strange and telling experiences appear in Haddad’s autobiographical monologue, Hi, Are You Single?

5 as part of the Public Theater’s 2017 Under the Radar festival—examines his experience of sex, dating, disability, and navigating sexual and romantic intimacy. No, those things are not mutually exclusive.” Audience members are instructed: “Please bring an attractive male friend with you.”Over a lunch of salads in a New York restaurant, Haddad told a reporter that he wrote the play in his early twenties, just when he started hitting the gay bars in New York City for the first time.

As the notes for his play state: “Do you have a high sex drive? A recent graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University, having studied theater and creative writing, Haddad said, “I was under the impression that I couldn’t be an actor because of my disability.

I grew up wondering, ‘Did I not get this part in this community-theater show or high-school show because I have a walker, or because I was not right for the part? ”He got some parts, but with others he never knew if it was skills being judged or his disability.

“I went into college thinking, ‘I have to be a playwright or director, not an actor, because I don’t want to take that rejection all the time.’”The last piece of community theater he did proved significant.

It was a production of Annie, which he had loved seeing on TV and in Cleveland when he was growing up.

The director said she wanted him to play Daddy Warbucks, but Haddad didn’t think Warbucks “could be played by an actor with a walker.” He thought he would be given the part of Franklin D.

Roosevelt, as he was in a wheelchair, but he was wrong. Next, he played Madame Armfeldt, who uses a wheelchair, in a production of Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music.

He had sung ‘Liaisons,’ her big number, before, and “I was reversing gender and using my disability playing her.

That may not be a big deal in New York City, but this was small-town Ohio.

It was a great showcase for my talents, and it was nothing to do with the walker.“When I walked out to do a curtain call the last time, I started crying, because I realized there were not many roles so perfectly suited to my limited ability.“There are so few roles written for performers with disabilities, or roles featuring characters with disabilities for those performers to play.
