World Premiere by Jaclyn Backhaus
Directed by Will Davis
In a small Wisconsin town, a tight-knit Punjabi community gathers to celebrate the wedding of a traditional family’s only son, just as their strong-willed daughter announces her plans to move away and open a bar. As they come together for feasts filled with singing and dancing, one generation’s cherished customs clash with another’s modern-day aspirations, and ghosts and pirates from the family’s past linger in everyone’s thoughts—until one sudden event changes everything. This poignant and smartly funny new play about legacy, life, and longing comes from the fresh voice of Jaclyn Backhaus, who again teams up with her Men on Boats director Will Davis.
