THE ADVENTURES OF THE BLACK GIRL IN HER SEARCH FOR GOD

THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2018 TO SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2018 

written by Lisa Codrington
adapted from the short story by George Bernard Shaw

directed by Nina Domingue

 

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s short story, this side-splitting comedy follows a young African girl who is abandoned by a white missionary for asking too many questions about God. Taking matters into her own hands, she sets off on her own to find out who—or what—God really is. Along the way she meets a number of characters who have very different views on God. In the end she’s forced to make her own decisions on God and her search.
