Syrian Community Network invites you to attend “Lost and Guided” on May 7, 2018 at Goodman Theater in Chicago. “Lost and Guided” is an original play based on interviews conducted with Syrian refugees. Approximately 90% of the script was taken directly from interview transcripts.
“Lost and Guided” tells the story of how the lives of four young Syrians are changed forever after anti-government protests transpire in the city of Daraa. Throughout the next six years, each of them is forced to undergo a unique and heroic journey, while the turmoil in their country erupts into a full-fledged civil war. From the Middle East to the streets of New Orleans, “Lost and Guided” is a universal story of love, friendship, and the struggle for happiness.
