    Her Portmanteau

    “Extraordinary,” proclaimed The New York Times about the drama unfolding in the Playhouse’s brand new theater. Rising star Mfoniso Udofia’s acclaimed play centers around matriarch Abasiama and her two daughters, reunited – but not reconciled – in America. “Masterfully written,” exclaimed the LA Times, HER PORTMANTEAU “defies preconceptions and expectations with a deeply felt perspective on immigration.” Part of Udofia’s 9-play series inspired by August Wilson’s epic Century Cycle, this exquisite season opener will be staged by George Street’s Associate Artistic Director Laiona Michelle. “While you may go in thinking you’ll be seeing a play about someone else’s family,” added the Times, “by the end you’ll be thinking about your own.” Learn More
