The Lost Boys of Sudan

Written by Lonnie Carter
Directed by Jim Corti
March 19 – April 25, 2010

Summary

Three boys meet in the worst way: fleeing the horrors of war. And as they team up on a perilous journey to a refugee camp, they exchange heroic survival stories, song and even laughter. Thus begins an extraordinary passage that eventually takes three boys of the Dinka tribe to, of all places, Fargo, North Dakota, where drought, crocodiles and guerrillas are replaced by malls, video games, and Skittles. From the writer of recent VGT hits The Romance of Magno Rubio and Wheatley.
