The world premiere of Dael Orlandersmith’s “Forever,” directed by Center Theatre Group Associate Artistic Director Neel Keller, opens Sunday, October 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the CTG/Kirk Douglas Theatre. A DouglasPlus presentation, “Forever” was commissioned and developed by CTG with performances continue through October 26.
In “Forever,” writer/performer Orlandersmith investigates the complex legacy she received from her mother and their difficult life in New York. A riveting and powerful memoir about family – the ones we are born into, and the strange way powerful bonds are formed with people who are “kin” through shared experience and perspective, is inspired in part by Orlandermith’s experiences in Paris at the famed Père Lachaise Cemetery where strangers from around the world make pilgrimages to the graves of such legendary artists as Jim Morrison, Marcel Proust and Richard Wright.
