Runaway Home (OPENING NIGHT)

September 13-October 9
8:00 PM
The Fountain Theatre: Los Angeles

Event Overview

Three years after Hurricane Katrina, the unhealed wounds of New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward continue to fester. In this powerful, funny and deeply moving mother-daughter story, 14-year-old runaway Kali (Camille Spirlin of ABC’s American Koko, Fox TV’s Rosewood and Nickelodeon’s Marvin Marvin) embarks on a journey to pick through the wreckage of what used to be her life, rhyming, stealing and scamming her way through the still-destroyed neighborhood. While the rest of the country's attention drifts, the community's residents are left to repair the damage from the inside out. As their attempts at renewal leave a path of destruction in their wake, Kali bears witness to what the floodwaters left behind. Sept 16 – Nov. 5: Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. & Mondays at 8 p.m.; $5-$35; Fountain Theatre, 5060 Fountain Ave. (at Normandie), Los Angeles, CA 90029; (323) 663-1525; www.FountainTheatre.com.
