Nine-year-old Amanda's room is her haven, and her beloved toys are her best friends and confidantes—or at least they used to be. Lately, something's gone dark inside Amanda—and her toys make it their mission to discover why. Highly visual and brilliantly written, Soft Target
invites its audience into the wild imagination and theatricality of childhood—even as it asks us to grapple with some of the most painful questions of our time.
Produced with the generous support of Fran & Barry Weissler. Major support for this world premiere production provided by the Edgerton Foundation New Play Production Fund.
Director: Jo Bonney
