Summary

Nkechi was a good Nigerian American girl. She did everything right. Went to med school. Made plans. Then life happened. And plans changed. A first-generation coming-of-age journey of love, loss, and growing into adulthood, Good Grief follows Nkechi as she navigates Pennsylvania’s suburbs alongside her childhood crush, her would-be-philosopher brother, and her immigrant parents. Hailed as a "profound dramatic work" by LA Weekly, this hilarious and heartbreaking new play reunites playwright Ngozi Anyanwu and director Awoye Timpo.

Thank you, Ngozi

This was sweet. It gave me my first peaceful dream about my brother who passed in March 2020. His name was Jayvon Jenkins and he was wonderful. And flawed. Human. My baby brother. His antics and laughter gave my life color and warmth since I was 2 and a half and now he’s gone. The author’s portrayal of conversations with her departed are like what I’ve had running through my own mind. The description of what the moment before death may be like soothed me and let me shoulders relax for the first time in 7 months. I think Jay would have enjoyed listening to this with me. Thank you Ngozi.
