Sans Merci examines the lives of college students Kelly and Tracy, who get involved in a dangerous humanitarian mission to South America. While helping the U'wa Indians in Colombia, the ladies are brutally attacked by revolutionaries, leaving Kelly crippled and Tracy dead. Years later, Kelly meets Tracy's mother, and both of them must deal with the grief and truth of what happened during that ill-fated mission. This powerfully cathartic drama addresses rape, homophobia and the silencing of women through an unapologetic, honest script. Johnna Adams' play premiered in 2008, winning the Bloomington Playwrights Project's Reva Shiner Award. Learn More

If you go to see this play, stick around as the theme building in the first half clarifies and intensifies after intermission. The acting is mostly quite good, small flaws by acting students don't mar the overall impact; the directing, costuming and stage settings very good, and Kushner's script incorporates interesting dramatic devices to bring home the universality of the choices we each must make in life when faced with dilemmas of personal responsibility. Go see this play.
