This powerful performance pulls you in right from the first line. It’s the story of a woman who is either being interrogated or interviewed by a police detective. The entire play is her recounting the events that lead up to a man being killed and his son being blinded. While she tells the story, performers act out the scene she is describing. It’s unclear how involved the detective is, at times he only speaks to the protagonist and other times he interacts directly with the people in her story. The performers are amazing and paint rich, vivid characters. This is one you don’t want to miss.

Red Haired Girl has twists and turns that keep you involved until the end. Is all this possible from one family? Seeing is believing.

With its poignant writing and passionate acting, this moving story of The Red Haired Girl will keep you intrigued from the beginning until the end. I highly recommend experiencing this truly unique play about a woman named Jo, played by Regan Brown and her tumultuous search for the daughter she gave up as a teen. The accomplished cast plays robustly diverse characters as they skillfully weave you through a riveting story you will certainly never forget.
The Red Haired Girl grabs you from the start and leaves you wanting to see how things will end.
A successful woman goes searching for the child she gave up 20 years before.
