Cultures and Kin Clash in Family Drama "Her Portmanteau" at George Street Playhouse

A story about a mother and her daughters, split by cultures. In “Her Portmanteau,” a George Street Playhouse production on stage at the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center Oct. 11 — 30, we follow a Nigerian-American family trying to reunite amid the stark differences of lifestyles and values when relatives are spread across continents.

Correspondent Jesse North is at rehearsal in New Brunswick to talk with the creatives bringing this family to life on stage.
