This Week in LBC Rewards 3.7.16

It is getting warmer out there, but still can be a little chilly and wet. Want to get out but not get soaked to the bone? Why not take in a play? This week, check out Lily Plants a Garden.

Inspired in part by 9/11, the play takes place in a rubble house where the protagonist, Young Girl, finds a doll and creates a magical tale about a “Zobeing” named Lily who, like herself, exists in a war-torn world. Lily is brought to life through the words of Young Girl where in the story, after being abandoned, Lily is found by a Wuluman couple. However with the arrival of Lily in the Wuluman community, the community reacts negatively against Lily because she is a Zobeing, their enemy.

Long ago, Zobeings and Wulumans used to live in a community together in which they planted beautiful gardens but after an argument with a Zobeing and a Wuluman a fight began that later led to the Great Endless Forgotten War. In this, they separated and left their gardens non-existent.

As the war continues centuries later the knowledge about the garden and why it came to be has disappeared. By going against the odds, Lily plants a garden of hope and beauty in the world around her.Lily Plants a Gardenwill be performed March 11-12 at 7 p.m. and March 13 at 2 p.m. and school matinees performances will be March 15-16 at 10 a.m. in the Sponberg Theatre in Quirk Dramatic Arts Building. Ticket prices are $7.
