"An incisive exploration of the choices immigrants must make to become Americans." – WNYC
Presented in two parts, this heartrending pairing probes into the ties that bind mothers and daughters and how we define home.
The cast features Jenny Jules (The Crucible), Lakisha M. May (Everybody), Adepero Oduye (The Trip to Bountiful), Chinasa Ogbuagu (The Qualms), Hubert Point Du-Jour (Every Angel is Brutal), and Chinaza Uche (Dolphins & Sharks).
In Sojourners, a young, pregnant Abasiama struggles with the responsibilities of her arranged marriage as her husband becomes seduced by 1970s American culture. Intent on finishing her university studies so that she can return to Nigeria, Abasiama weighs her dreams and obligations as she attempts to move forward. Decades later, the full impact of her decision erupts when Abasiama’s family is reunited in Her Portmanteau. As Nigerian traditions clash with the realities of American life, Abasiama and her daughters must confront complex familial legacies that span time, geography, language and culture.
Her Portmanteau is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
