Where We Belong


LuEsther Hall October 28 - November 27, 2022 80 minutes, no intermission

New York Premiere
By Madeline Sayet

Directed by Mei Ann Teo
Produced with Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company
In Association with Folger Shakespeare Library

In 2015, Mohegan theatre-maker Madeline Sayet moved to England to pursue a PhD in Shakespeare, grappling with the question of what it means to remain or leave, as the Brexit vote threatens to further disengage the UK from the wider world. Moving between nations that have failed to reckon with their ongoing roles in colonialism, she finds comfort in the journeys of her Native ancestors who had to cross the ocean in the 1700s to help her people. In this intimate and exhilarating solo piece directed by Mei Ann Teo, Sayet asks us what it means to belong in an increasingly globalized world.
