GENERAL ADMISSION Public Onsale: May 8, 2018 11:03 AM to June 23, 2018 8:00 PM
New England Arab American Organization - NEAAO is proud to invite you to a staged reading of an incredible new play; "Lost and Guided", written and directed by Irene Kapustina from the Angle Project.

"Lost and Guided" tells the story of how the lives of four young Syrians are changed forever after anti-government protests transpire in the city of Daraa. Throughout the next six years, each of them is forced to undergo a unique and heroic journey, while the turmoil in their country erupts into a full-fledged civil war. From the Middle East to the streets of New Orleans, "Lost and Guided" is a universal story of love, friendship, and the struggle for happiness.

"Lost and Guided" is an original play based on interviews conducted with Syrian refugees. Approximately 90% of the script was taken directly from interview transcripts. The play was produced by Conrad Fisher and The Angle Project in August 2017 and originally ran for 4 consecutive weeks at UNDER St. Marks Theater in New York City.

Critics have called it: "an incredible new play" (ABC News), "a stunning new play" (Huffington Post), and "Theatre at its best..." (The Reviews Hub). The play's production was also profiled in Entertainment Weekly.
Reception including finger food at 6:00 pm, performance starts at 7:00 pm. Performance will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A
