Considering its difficult to get Americans interested in their own government, persuading the public to care about some of the worlds poorest and most conflicted regions seems nearly impossible. However, unlike the TV images to which the public has become so numb, relating the story of Millers lead character Hawa, based on a real Darfuri woman whose whereabouts are unknown, could be a great way to create awareness and demand compassion for the victims of the genocide in Darfur.
See In Darfur Friday at 8 p.m. at the Mosaic Theatre (12200 W. Broward Blvd., Plantation). Tickets cost $35, $15 for students. Performances continue through May 3. Visit www.mosaictheatre.com, or call 954-577-8243.
