October 20 - November 4, 1989

Toronto, Mississippi

by Joan MacLeod

Meet Jhana – someone you will never forget! Jhana is a moderately disabled teenage girl who'll steal your heat. Her father is an Elvis Presley impersonator! Her mother is a pragmatic high school teacher and the lodger is a poet named Bill. This richly poetic play is by turns outrageously funny and deeply moving – a play that celebrates warmth, love, dignity and human courage.
