Featuring Ukrainian folk music infused with popera, Breaking Bread: The Musical is the coming-of-age story of a girl who manages to survive the Ukrainian Famine of the 1930s.

Nadia questions traditional village life, and when Communists arrive in her village, she finds herself looking up to idealist Inna and falling in love with suave Alexei. But not until after her parents fall victim to the man-made famine does Nadia realize her life’s true meaning.

Inspired by the true story of Lesia’s grandmother, Breaking Bread: The Musical explores the meaning of freedom and hope, with political parallels to today.
