Beatriz is happily preparing for her sister's wedding when her farmhouse is overrun by soldiers. During the chaos, she becomes the unintentional guardian of a young girl who's become separated from her father. Her determination to help the child find her father sweeps Beatriz along on a journey across war zones and through time. But what began as a simple act of kindness takes on a strange twist when the girl seems to acquire curious powers. Beatriz and the youngster, in their struggle to survive, witness more than anyone ever should. This extraordinary new play by award-winning British writer Zinnie Harris, which stars Joan Allen in her first Chicago stage appearance in more than 20 years, asks whether it's possible to travel through a world in conflict and remain unaffected.
