Warrenton, VA – LFCC will join SOL in presenting they dynamic theatrical stage play, “Our Broken Peaces,” on Saturday, Novermber 19th in the Barn on the Fauquier Campus.  SOL (the word means “sun” in Latin and Spanish) is a multicultural faith based group in Midland that seeks to promote unity within diversity and shine the light of peace.  The play follows the intricate lives of diverse families over a 10-year span as they experience challenges, adversity, and triumph. 

The play was written by an LFCC counselor and professor who is also a community peace builder and leader of SOL.  The goal of the project was to capture the essence of “broken peaces” in society and present common situations in hopes that the audience might resonate with them and be inspired to pursue restoration.   The play focuses on hope, forgiveness, and healing in the midst of heartbreak, disappointment, abandonment, and narrow-mindedness. 

“Our Broken Peaces” will make you think, reflect, cry, and laugh, all at the same time.  There will be two live performances of the play, 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and tickets are $5 for those affiliated with the College and $7 for others.  The play includes current LFCC students, faculty, and staff, including Brian Wilcox, Felecia George, Amanda Rashkin, and Renard Carlos.  For more information, contact Felecia George at fgeorge@lfcc.edu or the Fauquier Campus at (540) 351-1507.
