When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 19 2016

Written and performed by Sean Christopher Lewis, this powerful world-premiere production gracefully balances two stories, one public (the 1994 Rwandan genocide), the other personal (an account of two young American missionaries caught up in the upheaval, told by one of the survivors), without getting bogged down in lots of reportage or distorting the facts for the sake of a ripping yarn. Instead, Lewis delivers the gripping tale of a callow, lovesick young man who only went to Africa to be with his crush and got much, much more than he bargained for. —Jack Helbig
