Los Alamos Resident Carrie Classon was working and living in Lagos, Nigeria when her life, as she knew it, screeched to a halt. Her marriage ended along with her job and company-owned housing.

 

In this situation, some might choose to panic and run back to the U.S. but Classon elected to take another route. She continued to live in Lagos for three-and-a-half years, deciding this was a “good opportunity to stay and figure out what had happened in my life.”

 

Now, she is taking her chronicles to the stage.
