About the Performance
Jo is in her junior year of high school in LaGrange, Illinois. She develops an ambiguous relationship with Emma, the new transfer student. She is assigned to read The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and immediately identifies with the main character as an outsider that is perpetually misunderstood. fml: how Carson McCullers saved my life is a story about the transformative power of literature to alter the way we view the larger world, finding a sense of belonging and being true to yourself even when others tell you not to.
