Nanci Carol Ruby, Director

A young Englishwoman, Lucy Snowe, is suddenly bereft of family, friends, and finances. She travels to Belgium for a fresh start with precious little money in her pocket. Lucy meets a variety of characters, and even a mysterious ghost, as she navigates life’s storms. Can Lucy find meaningful purpose, financial independence, and human connection? What will it cost her? Charlotte Brontë’s Villette, adapted by Sara Gmitter, takes us on one woman’s journey for survival.

No late seating allowed.  Join a talk back with the actors and director after the Wednesday,  January 24 performance.
