About this show

Dael Orlandersmith visits the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris, searching gravestones for the famous and the obscure while watching the living wander past. The memories come quickly, haunting Orlandersmith with thoughts of her challenging relationship with her own mother. A spellbinding tale of growing up in poverty in Harlem in the 1960s, Forever is about the trauma in her life, and her search for identity, forgiveness, and love. Orlandersmith's raw emotion is balanced with superior artistry in this world premiere from one of theatre's most innovative voices. "Dael Orlandersmith is a highly acclaimed playwright, but it's her breathtaking command of the stage as the star of her own works, many of which are solo shows, that often most impresses." - TheaterMania
