Production Description
Nkechi was a good Nigerian-American girl. She did everything right. Went to med school. Made plans. Then life happened. And plans changed. A first-generation coming-of-age journey of love, loss, and growing into adulthood, Good Grief follows Nkechi as she navigates Pennsylvania's suburbs alongside her childhood crush, her would-be-philosopher brother, and her immigrant parents. Hailed as a "profound dramatic work" by LA Weekly, this hilarious and heartbreaking new play reunites playwright Ngozi Anyanwu and director Awoye Timpo following their acclaimed collaboration on The Homecoming Queen.

Vineyard Theatre reunites with Audible, the world's largest seller and producer of digital spoken-word entertainment, following their award-winning production of Harry Clarke. Audible will record The Vineyard's production of Good Grief as an audio play.

Good Grief received its world premiere at Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles.
