Book-It Repertory Theatre

Inside Out Headerby Thanhha Lai
TOURS: March–June
THEMES: poetry, refugees, family dynamics, Vietnam War, dreams

A novel in verse of one girl’s year of change, dreams, grief, and healing, this coming-of-age novel follows Hà as she flees from Vietnam after the Fall of Saigon and immigrates to Alabama.


Each performance runs between 35 and 45 minutes and can be performed in venues as small as a classroom or as large as an auditorium. In conjunction with each performance, Book-It offers post-show workshops for children and young adults to reinforce what they have seen. These workshops allow young people to make the leap between seeing art and creating it.
