Dogs of Rwanda Opens January 17

Cedar Rapids – Working Group Theatre would like to invite you to Dogs of Rwanda, the newest solo piece from Artistic Director Sean Christopher Lewis. Originally developed at the Ojai Playwrights Conference (with Conan O’Brien and Mad Men Star Aaron Staton) it now comes to CSPS/Legion Arts in Cedar Rapids.

Dogs of Rwanda tells the story of David, an American writer who can not forget what he saw as a young missionary in Rwanda 20 years ago. He writes a book on his experiences and he’s thrust back into the spring of 1994 and his fateful meeting with a young boy on the run from genocide. That boy’s name was God’s Blessing. In 2013, David now sits in a hotel room in Rwanda, traversing time, literature, memory and regret to make sense of what he’s seen and done. Hopefully he can forgive himself for what he could and could not do for God’s Blessing.

Dogs of Rwanda plays January 17th and 18th at 8pm at CSPS. Tickets available here.
