MOURNING SUN
by Antu Yacob

Directed by Ari Laura Kreith

Presented in association with Theatre 167

Set in Ethiopia and New York, MOURNING SUN is a remarkable love story that spans continents and cultures. At 14, Biftu and Abdi listen to American pop music and fantasize about meeting Michael Jackson. Then Biftu is forced into an arranged marriage and her dreams and her body are destroyed. This explosive new play explores trauma and recovery, dislocation and identity, and the power of human connection.
