To The Promised Land

By Jonathan Gillard Daly

Directed by Roseann Sheridan

A young African-American girl's experience growing up in Milwaukee during the civil rights movement is overlapped with the true story of Golda Meir, the future prime minister of Israel. Both girls grew up in the same house, but 60 years apart from each other. Using magical realism, the two girls form a friendship, discovering their shared strength and hope, and how they both overcome injustices to realize their dreams. We are proud to present this new compelling young adult drama by Milwaukee playwright-actor Jonathan Gillard Daly. Recommended for our young adult audience: ages 10 & up.

Produced by Children's Theater of Madison at Overture Center for the Arts, 201 State Street, Madison
