Miracle in Rwanda

Leslie Lewis Sword brilliantly transforms herself into a host of characters to tell the incredible story of Rwandan Genocide Survivor, Immaculée Ilibagiza, a real-life messenger of hope.

Grace Rwanda supports the play, Miracle in Rwanda, based on the book “Left to Tell” by Immaculée Ilibagiza. It tells the story of how she survived during the Rwanda genocide in 1994. The story also represents what other Rwandan survivors had to live through, including Elizabeth and Marie Louise, Grace Rwanda Society’s co-founders.

Special Performance on September 29

Proceeds from this performance will benefit Grace Rwanda Society projects in Rwanda. Join us on Wednesday, September 29 for this incredible production.
