DEMBE

The Workshop Production of a new play by Amy da Luz

An investigation following a tragic accident which leaves Lola, a newly adopted baby from Uganda, in the middle of a fierce custody battle between estranged sisters Mary and Sarah, exposes ulterior motives, covert racism and some uncomfortable truths about international adoption. The search, instigated by Fran, an African American playwright and Sarah’s partner, exposes a trail of hypocrisy and denial on all sides, challenging faith, family and identity. The wake of the questioning ultimately brings together a group of adoptees from Africa that bear witness to Lola’s story and eventually tell their own; determined to be heard as human beings, and not seen as tools for redemption.
