When 14-year-old Malia (Lexi Mae Walker) learns of her mother’s diagnosis, she draws from the curative well of her own creativity to cope. Malia creates an extraordinary story that parallels her real-life through fantastical characters that provide solace, hope and strength as she navigates a new reality with her parents (Jennifer Fouche and Thom Miller). With soaring original music and powerful lyrics, this moving contemporary story will break your heart and heal it again in the course of a single evening. Get tickets here: https://bit.ly/33lniWS
