sueko to direct SINCE AFRICA at The Old Globe

May 18, 2008

In 2006, Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company produced Since Africa, Mia McCullough’s beautiful play about a lost boy of Sudan resettling into life in urban America. The play was a huge success, selling out before we even opened. Louis Spisto, the CEO/Executive Producer of The Old Globe, saw that production and, in October 2007, approached Mo`olelo’s Artistic Director, Seema Sueko, about directing the play as part of The Old Globe’s 2008-09 winter season! The news is finally public and you can read all about it here: http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20080518/news_1a18globe.html

It’s a tremendous opportunity for Sueko, and an honor for a show that was seen so recently at Mo`olelo to be picked up at The Old Globe. This won’t be a remount, but rather an original staging for The Old Globe’s audiences. The production will run from January 24 – March 8, 2009.
