Triplets Milo, Otis, and Della’s lives are very different from other kids. They’re too big for the third grade, they don’t know when they’ll have food for lunch, and they don’t go home if their father is in a bad mood. They know their Mama spends more time in the hospital than other mothers. They know she is sad again. As Daddy and Mama get worse, each child finds new ways to cope – some safer than others.

Kamila Boga (she/her) is a director, actor, and playwright from Los Angeles. Fueled by the belief that creatives are second responders, she develops and directs expressive, ensemble-driven work that turns tension into art. Kamila attends Dartmouth College, where she has received multiple awards, including the Eleanor Frost Playwriting Prize for her one-act Flinch, produced in July 2023. Her plays have been presented at the Ojai Playwrights Conference “In Celebration” performance, Atlanta’s Horizon Theatre, The Greenhouse Emerging Voices Festival, and Dartmouth College. Kamila is thrilled to work with The Road Theatre Company and grateful for the opportunity to collaborate on new work.
