Meet Bo-Nita, a thirteen-year-old with the wisdom and tenacity of someone more than five times her age. She needs all of it, living with her unstable mother, a philosophical 1/8 Cajun semi-ex-stepfather, and a belly-dancing grandma.
You are invited to attend the New England premiere of Bo-Nita by Elizabeth Heffron. Produced by Thalia-Bridge Productions, Bo-Nita is a one-woman comedy-drama starring Deirdre Hickok Bridge and directed by Gary Locke. As Bo-Nita spins her life story, filled with an equal mix of heartbreak and hilarity, you'll meet six more luckless but persistent souls. Bo-Nita's tale, told in flashback and insightful asides, offers a vivid but funny portrait of America today.
Bo-Nita won the 2013 Edgerton New Play Award and was given its world premiere in October 2013 by Seattle Repertory Theatre, Jerry Manning, Artistic Director in a co-premiere with Portland Center Stage. It was workshopped at JAW: A Playwrights Festival in 2012.
Warning: Mature themes and language.
