“A moving and powerful corrective to the notion that what immigrants leave behind is always awful, and that what they find is worth the trip.” —The New York Times

Her Portmanteau
by Mfoniso Udofia
directed by Gregg T. Daniel
featuring Joyce Guy, Omoze Idehenre, and Délé Ogundrian

A family rifles through their literal and emotional baggage in this taut and poignant drama about relatives, legacy, and connection. This West Coast premiere, brilliantly penned by first generation Nigerian-American storyteller Mfoniso Udofia, chronicles the triumphs and struggles of a tenacious family matriarch and two daughters. The mother and one of her daughters have called the United States home for many years. And the other daughter’s arrival raises heart-wrenching questions about the power of place, family bonds, and how we define our relationships over space and time.
