You will want to see this funny and powerful new work! It’s the story of immigrants in America today, and how their lives intersect under the figurative Big Top. A city subway station is the central point for all the action. A Liberian home care worker, an itinerant busker, a Bulgarian ringmaster and his wife, along with an Indian call center escapee, discover and redefine themselves through the telling of this magical fable.

Mama Nadi, the definitive unlikely heroine, is a shrewd businesswoman and apolitical opportunist in an African land torn apart by civil war. In her makeshift oasis in the Ituri rain forest, miners, government-backed militia, and their opposing rebel forces must leave their differences at the door.

Entertainment and escape await guests at Mama Nadi’s, and joy, hope and love coexist in the most unexpected of places. But is she protecting or profiting from the women she shelters? And how far will she go to survive? For more information: http://mixedblood.com
