A spirited, young runner with a promising future, Oya is faced with an impossible choice: stay home to care for her ailing mother or follow her dreams of becoming a track star. Caught between expectations and desires, loyalty and passion, Oya must learn to navigate the turbulent waters of adulthood on southern Louisiana.
Acclaimed writer Tarell Alvin McCraney (Oscar winner for Moonlight) weaves together lyrical dialogue, evocative music, and Yoruba mythology from Africa and the Caribbean in this powerful coming-of-age story.
Please Note: All guests will be required to wear an appropriate, properly-fitting mask while inside the performance venue.
