Sia ()

Director: Nina Lee Aquino


Factory Studio Theatre


March 24th, 2012 – April 15th, 2012


The day Canadian volunteer Nick Summers is scheduled to fly home from Ghana, he wakes up hung over and tied to a chair. His new friend Abraham, a former child soldier from Liberia, has taken him hotsage in a desperate bid to stop a war crimes trial at the International Criminal Court. If Abraham does not succeed, NIck will not survive. This is a story of how personal choices can have global consequences. SIA shatters our First World illusions, forcing us to face the harsh truth: we are all prisoners of our own sense of entitlement. (Show Facebook Event)
