After Kony: Staging Hope follows a team of actors, playwrights, and activists who use theater to help Ugandan teens share their story of resilience through a childhood filled with terror caused by Joseph Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army. Many of the teens were former child soldiers or sex slaves that escaped from their Lord's Resistance Army abductors. By dramatizing their stories, the teens are able to explore their traumatic past, as well as share their voices with the community and the world. The result is an epic play that reveals the vulnerable moments and powerful bonds that connect all of us as humans, no matter where we live or what we have gone through.
