Linda Means to Wait
A solo-performance by versatile actress Linda Kuriloff.

Running Time: 80 Minutes

Linda Kuriloff and Michelle Obama took the same bus to the same high school from Chicagos South Side and likewise tell stories that belie the popular images of their beloved city.  While the former First Lady offers a look into one black familys life in her recent book  Becoming, LINDA MEANS TO WAIT looks at an immigrant familys journey through the same place during the same era.

Linda Sithole, a South African-American high school leadership skills trainer working in the Bronx, attempts one morning to conduct a conflict resolution activity with her NYC public school students, only to find her Special Ed high schoolers intent on hearing her own story of conflict and transcendence. Taking the chance that sharing personal experience might make a better teaching  than a planned exercise, she portrays 20 different childhood characters to reveal her familys cultural traditions, Chicagos racial divide, and the intersections they all share as urban dwellers.  Through song, dance, laughter, and tears, teacher and students discover one other, their neighbors, and a new vision of community responsibility.
