A brilliant piece of staging...original music between the scenes” - Broadway World
Award Winning Vista Players - A World Premiere Production at the Secret Rose Theatre
The editor of a feminist journal and a guerrilla fighter coordinate missions for the recovery of women and children abducted during the genocide. Crossing into Armenia, to transport supplies and weaponry, has become nearly impossible and their idealism is challenged as the political situation around them takes a darker turn. The "new girls" of this era begin setting their sights on a life beyond the confines of the city, rather than a life of oppression within it. An entire nation teeters on the brink of displacement.
“Highly recommended. An extremely significant story...gorgeous writing” - NoHo Arts District
"This story unfolds during the aftermath of World War I, when the city was under Allied occupation. It focuses on the Armenian minority in the post-genocide era, at a time of political intrigue, military struggle, and a burgeoning feminist movement,” explains writer Aram Kouyoumdjian.
The cast includes Eva Abramian, Jonathan Fishman, Jade Hykush, Travis Laughlin, Kristin Mothersbaugh, Luc Rosenthal, Robert Walters. Directed by Aram Kouyoumdjian.
Alan Tollefson (Scenic Design), Henrik Mansourian (Lighting Design), Allison Dillard (Costume Design), Ara Dabandjian and Ken Press (Original Music Composers).
