This play tells the story of a Romanian Roma (gypsy) girl whose mother abandons her after birth. With the help of her childhood soul-mate she learns to navigate the harsh realities of her existence and to excise parasitic relationships, to “kill,” to turn her back forever even on the maternal bond, in order to discover her own extraordinary identity. Karin Coonrod directs this powerful play by Andras Visky, which recently won the Special Award at the Romanian Minorities Festival and received a critically acclaimed run in Chicago with Theatre Y.
