Award-winning playwright/performer Dael Orlandersmith (Stoop Stories, Black N' Blue Boys/Broken Men) returns to the Goodman to share her latest work before it premieres in Los Angeles and New York later this season. Set in Paris in the famed Père Lachaise Cemetery, Forever examines the way we form powerful bonds with people who, though unrelated to us by blood, come to feel like family. While observing strangers who have traveled to the cemetery to pay homage to their favorite artists, Orlandersmith investigates the complex legacy she received from her mother, a legacy of bitterness and abuse but also of art and beauty.
