who knew grannie
a dub aria
Four cousins return to Jamaica in remembrance of the woman who raised them all. A lyrically powerful new play in dub by ahdri zhina mandiela.
In this lyrical masterpiece, four cousins reunite in Jamaica to mourn the passing of their grandmother and to celebrate the times they shared together. There's vilma, an up-and-coming politician; kris, a celebrity chef; tyetye, who's incarcerated; and likklebit, who's immigrated to Canada. As the cousins reminisce about the woman who had such a strong role in rearing them, they uncover their troubles and begin to fulfill grannie's last task: to bring them back in tune with themselves.
