About this show

Is our capacity for love greater than that for violence? In northern Uganda, the daughter of an American missionary and a local teenage girl steal into a candlelit church to exchange vows in a secret wedding ceremony. But when an escalating civil war encroaches on their fragile union, they cannot escape its reach. Confronting the cost of intolerance, this powerful drama examines violence, the struggle to rebuild, and the human capacity for love and forgiveness.

Audience advisory: This play contains gunshots, strong language, and adult content.
