“A tale of female resilience and survival, this is a testament to one woman’s authenticity and tenacity in a world that demands subjugation.” – Sebastian Beaumont, Broadway Baby
Presented by Rhiannon Brace and Scott Swinton
In the Littlewood Theatre
Rhiannon is 13, fears being possessed by the devil and has a recurring dream about the end of the world. She is not like her classmates; she doesn’t go to parties, there’s no pop music or make-up or Christmas trees in her world. She can recite the Bible, the Ten Commandments and the twelve sons of Jacob. Despite her fears, she is beginning to find her voice and her own identity and secretly loves peering at the twinkly Christmas lights in wintery windows.
The Promised Land highlights the female experience of life within the group where men have the control and make the rules and where children are to be seen and not heard.
