Bo-Nita By Elizabeth Heffron
ABOUT THE SHOW
You could say that life gets a little weird for precocious 13-year-old Bo-Nita when she finds her ex-stepfather dead on her bedroom floor. With humor, pathos, and a dash of Midwestern magical realism, this wild one-woman, seven character adventure follows a mother and daughter's elaborate plan to hold their dysfunctional family together.
Bo-Nita won the Best Storytelling Show Award at the United Solo Theatre Festival on Theatre Row in NYC.
