Written by Leslie Lewis and Edward Vilga, with an uplifting message of forgiveness and compassion, Miracle in Rwanda is based on the life of New York Times Bestselling author of Left To Tell, Immaculée Ilibagiza. Miracle in Rwanda chronicles Immaculée’s dramatic experience of survival during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. The message is one of personal empowerment, of overcoming all obstacles through the power of faith, and ultimately finding peace of mind amidst unbelievable hardship. Acclaimed Rwandan actor, singer, poet, and social justice activist, Malaika Uwamahoro, stars in this production of the one-woman play.
The Virtual Opening Night of Miracle in Rwanda will be held on Saturday, April 10, and features a live performance of Miracle in Rwanda starting at 8:00 pm, followed by a talkback with Malaika and Immaculée at 9:20 pm. The talkback will be hosted by Dr. Lauren Bairnsfather, Director of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh.
