Educational Program: Global Classroom, April 28, 8am ET



The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh and Prime Stage Theater are proud to present an original production of Miracle in Rwanda in honor of Genocide Awareness Month.

Written by Leslie Lewis and Edward Vilga, with an uplifting message of forgiveness and compassion, Miracle in Rwanda is based on the life of New York Times Bestselling author of Left To Tell, Immaculée Ilibagiza. Miracle in Rwanda chronicles Immaculée’s dramatic experience of survival during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. The message is one of personal empowerment, of overcoming all obstacles through the power of faith, and ultimately finding peace of mind amidst unbelievable hardship. 

Acclaimed Rwandan actor, singer, poet and social justice activist Malaika Uwamahoro stars in this production of the one-woman play. It is directed by Steven Wilson.

On opening night, we will host a talkback after the performance with Malaika and Immaculée, hosted by Dr. Lauren Bairnsfather, Director of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh.

This program was made possible thanks to generous support from Jewish Women’s Foundation of Pittsburgh.
