In a two-part theatrical event, NYTW Usual Suspect Ed Sylvanus Iskandar brings to life the singularly poetic world of playwright Mfoniso Udofia’s Sojourners and Her Portmanteau. Performed in repertory, these two chapters of Udofia's sweeping, nine-part saga, The Ufot Cycle, chronicle the triumphs and losses of the tenacious matriarch of a Nigerian family. Sojourners and Her Portmanteau will be produced by New York Theatre Workshop in association with The Playwrights Realm, who premiered Sojourners last winter, in a limited engagement world premiere production.
