"Mind’s Eye, a play based on an award-winning novel of the same name, will have its worldwide theatrical debut in the Philippines on November 9 and 10 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City.
"Helmed by veteran stage director Jaime del Mundo, Mind’s Eye is an engaging story on the relationship between the two lead characters, 88-year-old Elva and 16-year-old Courtney, in a nursing home in North Dakota. Elva and Courtney overcome their physical limitations to take a shared imaginary trip to Italy using their minds and a 1910 Baedeker travel guidebook. This fantasy journey allowed them to visit some of the greatest museums, art galleries, and architectural monuments in Italy.
"Mind’s Eye celebrates the power of imagination through literature, poetry, and the arts. Written by award-winning children’s book author Paul Fleischman, the novel received an American Library Association (ALA) award for Best Books for Young Adults.
