A STORY OF FRIENDSHIP, FAMILY, AND THE HEART OF A Baltimore NEIGHBORHOOD
In a Baltimore beauty shop, two longtime co-owners and best friends grapple with a major decision: remain as the anchor of their beloved neighborhood, or relocate under the pressures of gentrification and crime? In dialogue that resonates with everyday poetry, and underscored with music both profound and stirring, A Wonder in My Soul looks at the evolution of one family, the history of Baltimore, and a whole community.
Content Advisory: This story of friendship and Baltimore neighborhoods is fitting for audiences in middle school and beyond.
Approximate runtime is 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one intermission.
