Photo Flash: First Look At Danai Guira’s FAMILIAR At The Old Globe

Via: BroadwayWorld

A funny, warmhearted look at tradition, marriage, and what it means to be an American family. Donald and his wife Marvelous have been living the American Dream since emigrating from Zimbabwe nearly three decades ago. They have a beautiful house and impressive careers, and now one of their daughters is getting married! But when the bride insists on a traditional African wedding ceremony, tensions start to rise.

Throw in an eccentric aunt from the old country and a bewildered bridegroom, and soon it’s not certain the couple will ever make it down the aisle. The New York Times calls it “an engrossing, fiercely funny comedy-drama that probes with subtlety and smarts.”
