Sojourners/Her Portmanteau

649x1024 DUET Show Art.jpg
In Sojourners, a young, pregnant Abasiama struggles within her arranged marriage and with a husband who is obsessed with 1970s American culture. Determined to complete her university degree, she weighs her dreams and obligations as she attempts to move forward. Decades later, the full impact of her decision comes to the surface when Abasiama’s family is reunited in Her Portmanteau. In the following play in The Ufot Cycle, Nigerian traditions clash with the realities of American life, and Abasiama and her daughters must confront complex familial legacies that span time, geography, language, and culture. Both plays are chapters of Mfoniso Udofia's nine-part saga The Ufot Cycle, which chronicles the life of the tenacious matriarch of a Nigerian family.

Decades later, the full impact of her decision erupts when Abasiama’s family is reunited in Her Portmanteau. As Nigerian traditions clash with the realities of American life, Abasiama and her daughters must confront complex familial legacies that span time, geography, language and culture.
