Exceptionally insightful...layered, compelling depiction of the unescapable pull of family and history. Uproariously farcical...Familiar explodes into something unexpected

Why See Familiar?


A fiercely funny play

Warm up this winter with Danai Gurira's fiercely funny Familiar as it lights up the Steppenwolf! Directed by Danya Gurira, Familiar is a witty, insightful and boisterous play about when old and new collide. Starring Cheryl Lynn Bruce, Erik Hellman, and Lanise Antoine Shelley, this deeply compassionate production is full of heart-ache, wit and most importantly, love.

In the depth of a Minnesotan winter one Zimbabwean-American family prepare for their eldest daughter's wedding. When an unexpected guest arrives and the bride announces that she wants a traditional African wedding stress-levels reach boiling point throwing the family into a full-on feud. Will they be able to come back from the brink in time for the ceremony?
