All for One Theater presents documentarian Elizabeth Van Meter's autobiographical solo show about how we make meaning from loss. More…
While grieving the loss of her younger sister, Elizabeth comes across a photograph of Thao, a young Vietnamese woman who suffered severe birth defects as a result of Agent Orange. Elizabeth is drawn to Thao's amazing spirit, and her quest to fill her rural library. She travels to rural Vietnam to meet Thao, and the two women forge an unlikely sisterhood, transcending language and culture. Van Meter's one-woman play is based on--and incorporates footage from--her documentary of the same name.
See it if you want to witness something astonishing and raise your hope about human kindness, the power of love and forgiveness.
Don't see it if you don't like shows that make you laugh and cry
See it if you want to watch the cathartic experience of a woman over the loss of her sister.
Don't see it if you want to see theater. Admirably done, this is a solo performance that doesn't resonate the way one would expect.
