In a world of confusion two teenagers find hope and solace in each other…
World-weary Kenny wants to escape the nightmare of his family life when his world collides with troubled, fiercely independent Junie’s and he finds the refuge he’s been seeking.
Seniors in high school, and on the brink of possibility, Kenny and Junie take us on an intense, messy, and confusing journey that evokes the heady emotional truth of young love and confronts the hypocrisy of the American dream head on.
Exciting, beautiful and full of life lessons that teach us to speak our truth out loud.
This is a world premier! Be the first to see this beautiful work
