The Lower Eastside Girls Club (www.girlsclub.org) provides a place where girls and young women 8-23 can grow, learn, have fun, and develop confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world. By delivering strong arts, literacy, science, health and leadership programs we provide girls with the vision to plan – and the tools to build – their future. All Girls Club programs develop environmental, entrepreneurial and ethical leadership in the girls we serve.
“The play is a thing of beauty…and I’m here to tell you to see it.” David Swanson, After Downing Street
More about the play: In PROPHECY, the Abraham-Sarah-Hagar myth echoes through the marriage of Sarah and Alan Golden. Sarah Golden is an acting teacher who tries to avert the tragedy of a talented young man who went to war for tuition money but returns with a terrible secret seared into consciousness. Then, Alan's estranged daughter arrives from the Middle East, seeking retribution.
