Set in the South African iMfolozi wilderness, in the oldest game park in Africa, SISTERS OF THE WILDERNESS tells the story of five young Zulu women from underprivileged backgrounds going into the wilderness for the very first time, carrying on their backs all they need for a life-changing journey of self-discovery. Led by Lihle Mbokazi, the first black South African woman wilderness guide, they walk in big game country and camp under the stars, totally surrounded by wild animals, are exposed to the elements and face emotional and physical challenges as never before. They also learn of the plight of this primordial wilderness, severely threatened by a neighboring coal mine, in addition to intensified rhino poaching that could escalate towards an extinction. The group's journey serves as a reminder of how we all are intimately linked to nature; what we do to her, we do to ourselves. Confronting majestic if precarious realities, and coming together to share their deepest challenges and most painful life stories, the women inspire each other and emerge with renewed self-esteem.

It is a drama about a small New England town called Gillead where one restaurant The Spitfire Grill has been up and running for 40 years.

Its owner Hannah Ferguson (Sarah Saviano) cooks three meals a day and runs the place by herself.  Bold and stubborn as a mule, Hannah keeps a dark secret about a close relation. It takes a stranger to Gillead to uncover the secret, to cause further complication and ... to gradually set things right. Now onstage at the Garry Marshall Theatre through August 11, The Spitfire Grill  is a winning production that will entertain you and simultaneously tug at your heart strings.
