“In “The Sound of the Cracking Bones” by Suzanne Lebeau, thirteen-year-old Elikia, a resilient, courageous girl, leads innocent eight-year-old Joseph on a harrowing escape through the jungle toward hoped-for freedom. Their story is later brought to light by Angelina, the nurse who rescued and cared for them, as she testifies before a tribunal charged with examining the issue of child soldiers. It’s because of her testimony that the reality of these children is revealed to us.
“The Sound of Cracking Bones”, a play originally intended for youth, is a life-affirming and an intimate portrayal of courage and hope that reminds of an unsettling and ongoing global issue.”
