THRILLING THEATER

In 2019, San Francisco’s A.C.T. and Magic Theatre will collaborate on a thrilling theatrical event, bringing two plays from Mfoniso Udofia’s acclaimed Ufot Family Cycle to Bay Area stages.

Audiences will have the opportunity to see two incredible works from the stunning, nine-play cycle that explores the Nigerian immigration experience in America through the eyes of one family.


“A sprawling series, moving between the United States and Nigeria—and also across time and space.”

The New York Times

“A deeply felt perspective on immigration and the unforeseen complications of an identity split between the American melting pot and a rich African heritage.”

Los Angeles Times

IN OLD AGE

BEGINS MAR 27, 2019
Magic Theatre

When Azell Abernathy, a seasoned repairman, arrives at the home of Abasiama Ufot to redo the floors of her dilapidated New England home, he is met with resistance. The two clash, challenge each other, and form an unlikely spiritual connection in this fifth installment of the Ufot family cycle, offering both a purge and a peacemaking, both frenzy and faith.
