The Words in the Margins

World Premiere

Axel, 31, was raised in California—an American boy who loves building bikes and working on cars. Steve, 34, grew up in Nairobi, Kenya—the son of academic parents who encouraged his love of language and travel. When Axel seeks help learning to read at the local library, he is assigned to work with Steve. ‘The Words in the Margins’ tells the story of the unique friendship forged by the two men as they each attempt to maintain hope and dignity in the face of circumstances beyond their control.
