Who Are You if You Can't Remember Your Past?
Chicago theatre company Idle Muse present the breathtaking world premiere of Barbara Lhota's gripping drama Girl Found. Inspired by true events, the mystery thriller is not only a harrowing character study of damage and survival in the present day, but tackles identity and the notion of truth. Balancing the realities of a cruel world with moments of hope and redemption, Girl Found and its fierce female characters present a complex portrait of a modern family struggling in the wake of personal trauma.
Four years since she mysteriously vanished, a 17-year-old girl resurfaces without a single memory of where she's been. She is soon able to remember her name Sophie Sobin, and is returned to her aunt Ellie and mother Eva much to their relief. Yet her joyful homecoming is overshadowed by the fractures that her disappearance has caused, and her memory loss threatens to push the family even further past breaking point.
