‘LOST BOY FOUND AT WHOLE FOODS’ AT PORTLAND STAGE EXPLORES REFUGEE EXPERIENCE
-New York Times
“Stirring…a most potent play”
–The New Jersey Star Ledger
“See. This. Play.”
In Lost Boy Found in Whole Foods, Christine—a middle aged, middle class, recently divorced mother—finds a cause in the Whole Foods produce section. Her “cause” is Gabriel, a Sudanese “lost boy,” who fled civil war in his own country to find himself in snowy North America. Christine invites Gabriel to live with her and her teenage daughter in their suburban house and the drama ensues. One woman’s straightforward desire to help becomes a story uncovering the difficulty of understanding others.
March 1-20 only. For tickets and more information, please visit Portland Stage website.
A very special event will follow the performance on Tuesday, March 15th. Sacred Stories by Color of Community will take place following the 6pm performance in the Studio Theater Light reception to follow. For more information, click here.
