Manhattan Theatre Club
World Premiere by Jeff Augustin
Directed by Saheem Ali
Can you ever really live the life you envisioned? In a mixed race family, a teenaged daughter and her dads are each trying to find happiness. Eisa wants to be the next Lauryn Hill and is struggling to break free of her sleepy New England town where she feels hopelessly trapped. Her fathers are each being pulled in different directions of their own, one trying to re-connect with an old love, the other clinging to the path he always believed would be their future.
Saheem Ali (Sugar in our Wounds) directs the MTC debut of Jeff Augustin’s (Little Children Dream of God) newest play.
