Cardboard PianoReturn

Playwright Hansol Jung Producer New Conservatory Theatre Center  [Website] Description 16-year old Chris just wants to find a safe place to live with the girl she loves- not an easy task in 1999 Uganda. Determined to be together, Chris, the daughter of American missionaries and Adiel, a local girl, meet in the village church to marry in secret. When the war outside the church walls breaks its way into their sanctuary in the form of a wounded child-soldier, all three lives become tied together forever. "Cardboard Piano" is a riveting testament to the power of the past to shape the future, and the bonds of love, family, and forgiveness. Produced in partnership with Museum of the African Diaspora, this “deeply moving new play” (Courier Journal) will run Oct 26-Dec 2 at New Conservatory Theatre Center.
