They call Rachel the lucky one. Alongside her 18 brothers and sisters, Rachel survives nine years of deprivation and brutality at the hands of her fundamentalist and vengeful father. Then an extraordinary act of courage leads Rachel to discover a secret that lives in her heart – a secret she has kept safe since before she can remember – a secret that leads her to a breathtaking and unforgettable redemption.
Albany Park Theater Project’s "astonishing and exquisitely honed youth ensemble" (Chicago Sun-Times) brings its reputation for emotional honesty and imaginative theatricality to this exploration of what it means to be human and how we learn to love.
