WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Bessie Award-winner and beloved downtown actress Okwui Okpokwasili spins a modern multi-character folktale. In it, she portrays a woman in exile that sees and seeks revenge as a way of reconciling her present impoverished condition with the belief that she's a direct descendant of the sun. Interweaving legacy and the loss of old tongues, rituals and original songs, and a good old attempt to get a grip, the story sheds new light on traditional spells and third world brothels, and transforms every scratch & win ticket into a lucky one.
