Creator and performer Adil Mansoor brings us on his deeply personal journey to translate and adapt the play Antigone with his Ammi (his mother). Despite the deep love between them, their relationship is strained – Ammi struggles to accept Adil’s queerness and turns towards her faith in an attempt to save her son in the afterlife. Adil turns to an ancient Greek theatrical text to break the silence between them. Amm(i)gone asks: How do you choose between love and faith? What is lost (or gained) in translation, and what transcends language itself? Through Greek tragedy, teachings from the Quran, and audio conversations in Urdu and English, Mansoor creates a theatrical blend of lecture and personal story about locating love across faith.

The Tony Award®-winning Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company creates badass theatre that highlights the stunning, challenging, and tremendous complexity of our world. For over 40 years, Woolly has maintained a high standard of artistic rigor while simultaneously daring to take risks, innovate, and push beyond perceived boundaries. One of the few remaining theatres in the country to maintain a company of artists, Woolly serves an essential research and development role within the American theatre. Plays premiered here have gone on to productions at hundreds of theatres all over the world and have had lasting impacts on the field. Currently co-led by Artistic Director Maria Manuela Goyanes and Managing Director Kimberly E. Douglas, Woolly is located in Washington, DC, equidistant from the Capitol and the White House. This unique location influences Woolly’s investment in actively working towards an equitable, participatory, and creative democracy.

Woolly Mammoth stands upon occupied, unceded territory: the ancestral homeland of the Nacotchtank whose descendants belong to the Piscataway peoples. Furthermore, the foundation of this city, and most of the original buildings in Washington, DC, were funded by the sale of enslaved people of African descent and built by their hands.

PlayCo (Kate Loewald, Founding Producer, and Robert G. Bradshaw, Executive Producer) supports and collaborates with artists to generate a dynamic, global program of adventurous plays that celebrate the power of live theatre. We commission, develop and produce new works from the U.S. and around the world to advance an inclusive, innovative and relevant American theatre ecosystem. We commit to affordable access and collaborative community partnerships to make our work available and welcoming to all.

To date PlayCo has produced 45 new plays from the United States, Central and South America, Europe, Russia, South and East Asia, and the Middle East. Our organization, artists and shows have been honored with Obie, Lucille Lortel, American Theatre Wing, Drama Desk, and Drama League awards and nominations. Our signature artistic and community programs, including Studio development, Idea Lab Series, and artist residencies, link American theatre with world theatre, American artists with the global creative community, and American audiences with a whole world of theatre.

PlayCo’s office space on the island known as Mannahatta (Manhattan), and the rehearsal and performance spaces we use throughout New York City are located in Lenapehoking, the homeland of the Lenape people.
