Through subtle parental neglect, Delores is a young girl who falls victim to society’s pleasures. She plunges into rebellion through music and dance until her world literally crashes around her. Seeking wisdom from her father, she gains the courage to break free from strongholds that bind her.
The Girl in the Closet compels its audience to examine the figurative heart. Throughout the first few chapters of a young African American girl’s childhood to early adulthood, the heart’s boundaries, interpretations, and moral issues are expressed through theatrical symbolism and choreographed performances. Capping the theatrical journey, a guest panel will address key themes plaguing past and current faith-based organizations, single mothers, young-adult women, and adolescent girls.
