Danai Gurira (Playwright) & Miranda Haymon (Director)

Starring: Naomi Agnew, Esther Oluokun, Stella Asa, Stephanie Everett, & Michaela Benton

This award-winning play by Zimbabwean American actress and playwright Gurira celebrates the women who navigate the nightmare and wreckage of war. In 2003, in the waning days of the Second Liberian Civil War, the captive forced “wives” of a Liberian rebel officer form a hardscrabble sisterhood to take control of their own destiny, drawing on their reserves of defiance, wit and compassion. A chilling, humanizing and surprisingly funny portrait of survival, transformation and renewal.
