American Conservatory Theater's new production of Mfoniso Udofia’s Her Portmanteau began performances February 15 in San Francisco. The production, directed by Victor Malana Maog, is set to run through March 31 and stars Aneisa Hicks, Kimberly Scott, and Eunice Woods.

Traveling from Lagos to visit her mother and American-born sister for the first time in two decades, 30-something Iniabasi arrives to a snowy landscape, and even chillier truths inside a small Manhattan apartment. As Nigerian traditions clash with American realities, the family is forced to confront its literal and emotional baggage and its painful legacies across language, continents, and cultures. The play originally premiered in repertory with Udofia's Sojourners at New York Theatre Workshop in 2017.
