Enjoy this month’s play reading of “Familiar” by Danai Gurira. There’s something old, something new and something borrowed in this feisty, heartwarming play about a Zimbabwean-American family preparing for their daughter Tendi’s wedding. Marvelous and Donald have built their American dream in Minnesota, so when Tendi requests a traditional African blessing before marrying her white fiancé from Minnetonka and a surprise guest drops a bombshell, the rehearsal dinner can’t come soon enough. Family fireworks are interwoven with questions of cultural identity in this acclaimed play. Guthrie dramaturg Jo Holcomb will assign parts.


Registration is now closed. If you are interested in being on a "sub" list for the Guthrie play-reading program, please contact Betsy Wray:
