Join teenager Jacqueline Marie Butler as she and her family make their way across the sea from Queens to Ibadan, Nigeria — trading the chaos of the Civil Rights Movement at home for the outbreak of the Nigerian Civil War during the late 1960s. All she wants is to make friends, defeat geckos and conquer her crush of the neighbor boy ... but she ends up standing up for herself and defending her beliefs along the way. Based on a true story, acclaimed DC actress and winner of this year's Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Lead Actress Erika Rose stars in this funny, poignant play that brings the audience along in a fast-paced ride where she transforms into over a dozen characters to bring the story to life.
