Based on True Stories from Around the World, This Play Will Have You on the Edge of Your Seat
Founded in 2003, Second Thought Theatre provides an intimate and unique theatrical experience by empowering top local artists to take risks, and by showcasing writers who boldly tackle the difficult and demanding questions of our rapidly changing world. Second Thought Theatre will present the area premiere of Lela & Co. by Cordelia Lynn.
Lela, a young storyteller, sets the stage to tell the story of her beautiful, magical life. She also wants to be honest and tell “the whole truth and nothing but the truth.”
Lela is thirteen when her father accuses her of stealing a piece of cake hidden in the kitchen. She is fifteen when her husband steals her passport and hides it in his kitchen, hundreds of miles away. Separated from her childhood by the soldiers at the border of her country and the soldiers in the bedroom of her new home, Lela gains strength and wisdom that are hard-won and far beyond her years.
Based on true stories from conflict zones all over the world, Lela & Co traces a precarious path from girlhood to womanhood and celebrates the resilience of those who make the journey. You may purchase your ticket online at http://secondthoughttheatre.com for only $25. We promise you that you don’t want to miss this stunning performance!
