About this show

Lookingglass Theatre Company in association with Abbie Phillips presents The Last Act of Lilka Kadison, written by Nicola Behrman, David Kersnar, Abbie Phillips, Heidi Stillman and Andy White. David Kersnar directs this world premiere, inspired by the life and work of Johanna Cooper and the Public Radio International series One People, Many Stories. 17-year-old Lilka Kadison flees Poland on the eve of World War II. Seventy years later in Los Angeles, ghosts are invading her home, her caregiver won't give her back the remote and her afternoon's only going downhill from there. Wryly humorous, poignant, and ultimately triumphant, this unforgettable new play traces a love story that transcends war, decades, and distance, from 1939 Poland to current-day Los Angeles. A recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award. Tickets
