“Where does the light come from when it’s dark?” asks Bernadette, a fierce, bi-racial orphan girl who has survived abandon-ment at birth, abuse by institutions, and being marginalized by her society. Inspired by true events, this empowering coming of age story follows Bernadette as she conjures love, purpose, and hope from a barren landscape. This harrowing, hyper-poetic play explores how the most vulnerable need to become the most resilient.
