LEONORA

Written by David Stallings

Inspired by Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House

Based on a concept by director Antonio Miniño

Four months after Hurricane Charlie destroys Jamaica in the grim summer of 1951, Leonora is heedlessly celebrating Christmas with her family. As a black Jamaican woman polished from a young age to marry into a white family, she's used to living a sheltered life. Over the course of three balmy winter days, the shingles of Leonora's life will be rattled one by one; starting with the arrival of her childhood friend Kalisa, and ending in a tempest of self-discovery she cannot ignore.
