STG Presents Ahamefule Oluo - "Susan" at The Moore Theatre on Thursday, November 5, 2020 as a part of our 2020/2021 Performing Arts Season. Originally scheduled show ticket holders will be reseated and will receive new tickets before the performance!

Ahamefule J. Oluo’s darkly comic musical portrait of his mother builds one story out of many, a journey from Section 8 housing in 1980s Seattle, to the mangrove swamps of the Niger Delta, to the Clallam Bay Correctional Facility. With stunning new compositions, combined with soul-baring stand-up interludes, Oluo explores two intertwining narratives: his mother’s life as the white, Midwestern wife of a Nigerian chief, and later a destitute single mother; and his own journey to Nigeria as an adult, to visit his late father’s village and discover a family on the other side of the world.

Susan is an evening-length musical and storytelling performed by Ahamefule J. Oluo, written by Ahamefule and Lindy West.

Susan is a Creative Capital Project. Susan was commissioned by On the Boards in Seattle.

Susan has been presented as part of Portland Institute of Contemporary Art’s TBA Festival in September 2019 and as part of Under the Radar Festival 2020 at the Public Theater in New York City.
