A daughter’s love. A mother’s final blessing. Jessica’s homecoming forces past and present to collide as she learns to understand intolerance and tolerate her mother’s lack of understanding. Sun Sisters is a play about unspoken desires and how even silence cannot prevent their realization.

Followed by a Q & A session with playwright S. Vasanti Saxena.

Presented in partnership with Chicago Dramatists as part of The Many Voices Project. The Many Voices Project is Chicago’s first playwriting contest and readings festival that embraces all playwrights of color. The project brings together the city’s race and ethnic-specific theatres to develop and showcase unproduced, full length and 10 minute plays.
