McCarney blends West African Yoruban mythology and the African American experience to tell a poetic story of love and choice through the eyes of a young teenage girl, Oya, who struggles with coming of age in the chaotic yet vibrant Louisiana projects. Oya, meaning “the goddess of wind, lightning, fire, fertility, and magic,” finds herself forced into an emotionally heart-wrenching decision: to stay with her terminally-ill mother or to chase her dream of becoming a college track star. Show dates are February 7-9 and 13-16. For details call (313) 577-2960.
