“Sometimes at night the desert reminds me of the ocean, but I know that water is scarce.” And so we meet Ebele, heroine of the world premiere play Pulling Ivy. A Sudanese girl struggling for survival, Ebele is bright, resourceful, full of potential, and ultimately optimistic. But when a terrible sandstorm all but destroys the life that she knew, she and her father are forced to face their greatest fear: asking for help.
"Pulling Ivy" is brought to you by Core Care, a group of nine 7th graders who attend Northwest Academy in Portland, Oregon. Will you help them reach their goal of raising $3,000 for Mercy Corps?
