OUR LADY OF KIBEHO by Katori Hall
directed by Jennifer Eve Thorn
MAY 1 – MAY 29, 2016
OPENING NIGHT: MAY 7
Based on true events that captured the world’s attention and forever changed a community, OUR LADY OF KIBEHO tell the story of three girls in Rwanda who claim to see the Virgin Mary and deliver a message to the world that foretells the coming Genocide in Rwanda. Ostracized by schoolmates and labeled disturbed, everyone refuses to believe, until the impossible starts happening again and again. Skepticism gives way to fear, faith, and fate, causing upheaval in the school community and beyond. Olivier Award-winning playwright, Katori Hall’s, spectacular new play was dubbed “The most important new play of the year!” by the Wall Street Journal.
