Production Description

Set in 1985 in civil war-torn Africa, the play follows the true story of Salva, an 11-year-old boy from the South Sudan whose life is shattered when an explosion in his village forces him to separate from his family and walk hundreds of miles, surviving lions, crocodiles, and famine, on his journey to reach safety in refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya. Miraculously, Salva is one of 1,500 young men, known as the "Lost Boys," who are rescued from the refugee camps and sent to America.
