So excited to participate in the reading of Jeesun Choi's beautiful play, 'The Seekers.' I will be playing Fawsia Aden, a Somali refugee, Ilhan's single mother and nurse.
Ilhan Yusuuf Warsame, a Somali high school student living in Minneapolis, is at the loneliest point in her life when she starts having visions. People on the fringes of Europe, Arctic circle and urban landscapes populate her consciousness, drawing her into this forgotten world that exists just beyond reality. What happens when people, who feel the most alone on earth, find others?
