A new drama that tells the story of a Nigerian-American girl navigating her childhood home in Pennsylvania’s suburbs.
From the producers: Nkechi was a good Nigerian girl. She did everything right. Went to med school. Made plans. Then life happened. And plans changed. A first-generation coming-of-age journey of love, loss, and growing into adulthood, "Good Grief" follows Nkechi as she navigates Pennsylvania’s suburbs alongside her childhood crush, her would-be-philosopher brother—the king of the cul-de-sac—and her immigrant parents.
Playwright and actor Ngozi Anyanwu's screen credits include "Limitless," "The Affair," and "The Deuce." She returns to the lead role of Nkechi in "Good Grief" after having starred in the world premiere at Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles. Awoye Timpo, who directed Anyanwu's acclaimed "The Homecoming Queen" Off-Broadway, will direct.
Joining Anyanwu in the production are former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, Oberon K.A. Adjepong, Patrice Johnson Chevannes, Hunter Parrish, Ian Quinlan, and Lisa Ramirez.What's The Vineyard?

Rarely spectacular but usually interesting, the shows tend to focus on the writing. For the most part, it's unpretentious, skilled, and fun stuff. More here
