Next up, a new production of Familiar by Danai Gurira, and directed by Danya Taymor, at Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. The production features Scenic Design by Kristen Robinson, Costume Design by Ntokozo Kunene, and Sound Design by Justin Ellington.
From the Steppenwolf website:
It’s winter in Minnesota and a Zimbabwean-American family is preparing for the wedding of their eldest daughter. When an unexpected guest arrives and the bride surprises the family by insisting on a traditional African ceremony, pre-wedding stress explodes into a full-on family feud. Fiercely funny, fast-paced and filled with love, Familiar is a brilliant portrayal of a tight-knit family searching to preserve their past while building a new future.
