Acclaimed playwright Danai Gurira returns to Woolly!
It s winter in Minnesota, and an immigrant Zimbabwean family is preparing for the wedding of their eldest daughter. But when the bride insists on observing roora, a traditional bride-price ceremony, it opens a deep rift in the household. Rowdy and affectionate, Familiar pitches tradition against assimilation among the members of one devoted family. Which will prove stronger: the customs they keep or the secrets they ve kept buried?
Familiar the third Woolly production of Gurira s work, after successful runs of Eclipsed (2016 Tony nominee for Best Play) and The Convert is Woolly s entry into the Women s Voices Theatre Festival. Directed by Theater J artistic director Adam Immerwahr, one of Gurira's long-time collaborators.
