Alphonsine claims to have seen visions of the Virgin Mary and is ostracized in the all-girls’ Catholic school she attends…until others confirm seeing the same visions that foretell the genocide in Rwanda. Based on true and tragic events, Our Lady of Kibeho is a story of faith and everyday miracles that explores the questions of religion and belief. What role does culture play in religion?
Post-show discussions will follow the performances on 11/3 and 11/8. The performance on 11/7 will be interpreted in American Sign Language. The performance on 11/10 will be audio-described.
In partnership with
The Center for Black Diaspora, The Theatre School will host a lecture on 11/5 titled "Healing in Pre and Post Genocide Burundi and Rwanda: The Role of Ubuntu and More Agency" led by Jeanine Ntihiragez, PhD. The lecture will be held in The Theatre School lobby from 5:30 - 7:30 PM.

We offer American Sign Language interpretation presented by theatrically trained certified interpreters. Leading up to an interpreted performance, interpreters see the play multiple times, practice with recordings, and determine sign names for the characters in the play. We are happy to provide a script in advance to audience members who request this service. Contact the box office at email@example.com to request a script. We also offer ListenUp! personal listening devices for each performance. These assistive listening devices are available free of charge to patrons upon request.
The performance of Our Lady of Kibeho on 11/10 at 2:00 PM will include a live audio-description of the visual and physical events on-stage for patrons who are blind or have low vision. We also invite you to join us that day for a pre-performance program with a touch tour, which begins at 12:30 PM in the Watts Theatre lobby. The touch tour program will include information about the characters and design choices that add to the world of the play. Patrons who are participating in the audio-described event may also request the playbill in Braille, large print, and audio formats. Please indicate interest in the Touch Tour when you order your tickets. Call our Box Office at (773) 325-7900.
