Bo-Nita

February 1, 2014 – March 16, 0214
In the Ellyn Bye Studio

Life’s not easy for Bo-Nita. It never is for a 13-year-old, but especially one who winds up with a dead, semi-ex-stepfather on her bedroom floor. With humor, pathos and a dash of midwest magical realism, Bo-Nita follows a mother and daughter’s journey through a working-class America of dwindling resources, and the lengths they must go to stay together and keep their beat alive.

Portland loves storytelling, from The Moth and This American Life on OPB, to Back Fence PDX and local readings of MortifiedBo-Nita fits that Portland ethos perfectly. It’s as if Bo-Nita is answering the question “what was the most outrageous day of your life?” with a hilarious—and heartbreaking—worst/best-day-of-your-life story.

Actress Kate Eastwood Norris—who audiences adored in The North Plan—plays Bo-Nita.
