BO-NITA

By Elizabeth Heffron

directed by Kirstin Franklin

Regional Premiere

March 31 - May 7, 2017

You could say that life gets a little weird for precocious 13-year-old Bo-Nita when she winds up with a dead ex-stepfather on her bedroom floor. With humor, pathos and a dash of Midwestern magical realism, this wild one-woman, seven-character adventure follows a mother and daughter’s elaborate plan to try to hold their dysfunctional family together. 

Approximately 80 minutes, no intermission.
