America Is Hard to See

1st - 25th August 2019, 7.45pm


This daring new play uses a blend of verbatim interviews, Methodist hymns and original songs to investigate the lives in and around Miracle Village, a rural American community for sex offenders buried deep in Florida's sugarcane fields. Direct from a sold-out, award-winning run in NYC.
