The World Premiere of The Lady Victory.
Adapted and Directed by Ann Folino White
From the Book by Jane Vincent Taylor
Featuring original songs by Emily Nott
Adapted from the book of poems by Jane Vincent Taylor, this world-premiere play follows a group of pregnant teenage girls living at Our Lady of Victory home for Unwed Mothers, in 1960s Oklahoma. Hidden away from the world, the girls stave their fears of what’s to come and what they will lose by staging their own version of the musical Oklahoma! As the girls struggle understand what is happening to them, their confidante and mentor, Sister B begins to question her own sense of duty and morality.
