REVIEW: Grappling with buried trauma in “The Homecoming Queen”

“The Homecoming Queen” by Ngozi Anyanwu is a mysterious and reconciliatory meditation on buried trauma, family history, and liberation into one’s true self through the story of a novelist returning to her native Nigeria to visit with her ailing father and confront ghosts from her past.  Thematically taut but frustrating in its opacity, the play is a confident offering from an emerging playwright worth watching.
