Rising star playwright Mfoniso Udofia launches her sweeping cycle with a family’s origin story. 

Marriage, migration, and the pursuit of education collide when a young and brilliant Nigerian couple arrives in Houston, looking to earn their degrees and bring insights back to their home country. 

But when Abasiama discovers that her husband has been seduced by Motown records and American culture, she has to choose between the Nigerian Dream and her obligations as a matriarch. 

Director Dawn M. Simmons helms the lively and funny "SOJOURNERS" at the historic HUNTINGTON THEATRE following her acclaimed production of "K-I-S-S-I-N-G" at the Calderwood Pavilion
