WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

It's winter in Minnesota, and an immigrant Zimbabwean family is preparing for the wedding of their eldest daughter, a first-generation American. But when the bride insists on observing roora, a traditional bride-price ceremony, it opens a deep rift in the household. Rowdy and affectionate, Familiar pitches tradition against assimilation among the members of one devoted family. Which will prove stronger: the customs they keep…or the secrets they've kept buried?

Familiar — the third Woolly Mammoth Theatre production of playwright Danai Gurira's (Eclipsed) work — is the company's entry in the Women's Voices Theatre Festival.
