Homecoming (A Play)
Homecoming chronicles the life of Nwakibe, a retired head teacher and catechist, who embarks on a mission to find his missing son. It also follows Johnson, a writer, in search of a story for his new book. It is a story of quest, love, discovery, and how what one finds in life is capable of slipping through one's hands.
In advance of the performance, we'd like to invite you to visit our Virtual Lobby to learn more about the production and our team.
