WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Yale Rep presents the world premiere of Bossa Nova, a poignant and powerful new play by Kirsten Greenidge, who has been praised for her "imaginative reach and affinity for rich dialogue" (The Boston Globe). Dee Paradis has never fit in. Raised on the gentle swing of bossa nova and educated at elite, predominately white schools, she has led a life meticulously designed by her elegant and strong-willed mother, Lady. In the split second when she locks eyes with Lady in the mirror before a dinner party, Dee--now 30 years old and still torn between her mother's expectations and a former lover's ideals of authenticity--comes face to face with a choice that will determine her future. Kirsten Greenidge's other plays include Sans-Culottes in the Promised Land (Actors Theatre of Louisville) and Rust (San Francisco's Magic Theatre).
