The Imagine-a-nation of Lala Child
The full script of the much acclaimed play and special commentary from playwright/performer Rivera Sun Cook. Study the hidden meanings of the script or read it aloud for friends, either way this book is a great read. Welcome to 1890 Lovely, Kansas, a drought-stricken all-negro town, where a Chinese man rides a dust storm into ten year old Lala’s home and wins her Mamalou’s heart, spurring the gossipy shock of everybody else. Lala’s lyrical and imaginative child’s eye lends fresh perspective to ages old racial issues, washing us all with the sweet wisdom of an old soul in a small body.
