fml: how Carson McCullers saved my life

By Sarah Gubbins

Directed by Joanie Schultz

Featuring Zoe Levin, Ian Daniel McLaren, Lily Mojekwu, Fiona Robert and Bradley Grant Smith

Sunday, March 18 3 pm Tickets: $10 – Open-captioned performance

About the play: Jo's junior year of high school in suburban LaGrange, IL started off just fineundefinednot that it's ever easy being queer at 16. Thankfully, a new English teacher assigns Carson McCullers’ famed novel The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter and Jo discovers an unshakable kinship to McCullers’ central character John Singer. Like Singer, Jo is forever the listener, definitively the outsider, perpetually misunderstood and filled with unrequited love. Yet when she is a victim of a gay-bashing incident, her world is turned upside down and she must decide whether to seek revenge or redemption. A story of isolation, fitting in and finding oneself, fml: how Carson McCullers saved my life is a play about surviving high school and how literature still has the power to transform how we see the world.
