World Premiere of The Homecoming Queen Releases New Photos
Ngozi Anyanwu's play follows a Nigerian novelist who returns home to care for her ailing father.
Atlantic Theater Company's world-premiere production of The Homecoming Queen, written by Ngozi Anyanwu (Good Grief) and directed by Awoye Timpo, has released new production photos of its run at Atlantic's Stage 2. Opening night is set for January 22 for the production, running through February 11.
The play follows a best-selling novelist who returns to Nigeria to care for her ailing father. But before she can bury him, she'll have to relearn the traditions she's long forgotten. Having been absent for over a decade, she must collide with her culture, traumatic past, painful regrets, and the deep, deep love she thought she could never have.
The off-Broadway cast features Oberon K.A. Adjepong (Uncommon Sense), Segun Akande (Netflix's Burning Sands), Ebbe Bassey (Saving Father), Vinie Burrows (Good Person of Szechwan), Patrice Johnson (For Colored Girls…), Mirirai Sithole (School Girls; or, The African Mean Girls Play), Mfoniso Udofia (playwright, Sojourners and Her Portmanteau), and Zenzi Williams (The Crucible).
