Underground Railway Theater presents How Do You Spell Hope?: true stories of overcoming obstacles to literacy – a Cambridge high school athlete, Frederick Douglass, a Latina immigrant – woven together by puppets and actors in a world of giant pop up books. A play for all ages – by Melinda Lopez.
“The magic of theater truly comes alive…one of the best pieces of family theater.”
“…may its flying books take wing in audience’s minds and hearts.”
