“Buy, beg or steal a ticket,” wrote The Times of London after this play’s premiere last year. Victory Gardens Theater is proud to present the Chicago premiere of a remarkable and inspiring play. Juliette is a survivor of the Rwanda massacres of 1994. Now living in London, she encounters Simon, a well educated but uninspired and adrift poet and asks him to help her craft the manuscript she has written. Soon, she and her would-be mentor make life-changing discoveries about resilience, survival, and the expressive power of the written word.
