Don’t miss Night Frogs this Sunday, Feb. 4

Frogs and Tinker Bell…fire and rain. A woman finds comfort in childhood images and in her imagination until morning ignites painful realities of her life. Night Frogs connects us with the humanity underlying an epidemic that has exploded into a national crisis.

Written and performed by Teresa Lee, this short solo play is based in part on real events.

Sunday, February 4th
Boone Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Short service precedes the show.
