About This Show

Saudades is a new play by Fernando Segall and directed by Marina Zurita about Laura (Ana Moioli), a young Brazilian-American woman who embarks on a self-discovery trip to Brazil, searching for her long-lost mother, Luiza (Julia Burnier). Representing nuanced and varied perspectives of Brazilian immigrants in the US, Saudades brings this underrepresented community to the forefront and exposes some of its main emotional struggles – guilt, shame, discrimination, and nostalgia.
