Make sure to check out Familiar, writer Danai Gurira’s fascinating play about the intersection between culture, tradition,and integration, during its run at the Wooly Mammoth theater this spring. The drama, directed by Adam Immerwahr, explores what happens when the daughter of an immigrant Zimbabwean family in Minnesota decides to observe a traditional ceremony as part of preparations for her wedding. The play looks at family secrets, the immigrant experience, and how integration and tradition can collide, and how each generation responds to change, taking a nuanced look at the complexity of family relationships. You’ll love seeing how the play examines each of these issues with a creative lens.
