About this show

It's winter in Minnesota and a Zimbabwean-American family is preparing for the wedding of their eldest daughter. When an unexpected guest arrives and the bride surprises the family by insisting on a traditional African ceremony, pre-wedding stress explodes into a full-on family feud. Fiercely funny, fast-paced, and filled with love, Danai Gurira's Familiar is a brilliant portrayal of a tight-knit family searching to preserve their past while building a new future.
