MTC joins forces with Sisters Grimm for a world premiere production that will visually defy expectations and transform the Lawler as you’ve never seen it before when Lilith: The Jungle Girl.
Lilith: The Jungle Girl will take audiences on an epic, genre-defying journey as it explores assimilation and addresses the question: What happens to someone put into a world they don’t fit into?
When a young wild girl is captured in the rainforests of Borneo, all of Holland is set abuzz. The year is 1861, and pioneering neuro-scientist Charles Penworth is called upon to raise the child from the pit of her animal nature. But as Lilith learns to tame her feral heart and live amongst the glitterati of colonial Amsterdam, she begins to wonder, who, indeed, is the real savage?
