The world premiere of Ngozi Anyanwu’s The Homecoming Queen began performances January 10 at Atlantic Theater’s Stage 2. Playwright Mfoniso Udofia (Sojourners and Her Portmanteau) stars as a novelist returning to Nigeria to care for her father. Having been absent for over a decade, the trip forces her to confront a painful past, her culture, and a deep, unexpected love.

Awoye Timpo, associate director of Broadway’s Tony Award-winning revival of Jitney, directs. The run is scheduled through February 11 with a January 22 opening night.
