Special WAM Benefit Performance

Streaming June 24-27, 2021

Where We Belong

by Madeline Sayet
Directed by Mei Ann Teo

In 2015, Mohegan theatre-maker Madeline Sayet travels to England to pursue a PhD in Shakespeare. Madeline finds a country that refuses to acknowledge its ongoing role in colonialism, just as the Brexit vote threatens to further disengage the UK from the wider world. In this intimate and exhilarating solo piece, Madeline echoes a journey to England braved by Native ancestors in the 1700s following treatise betrayals – and forces us to consider what it means to belong in an increasingly globalized world.

This stunning Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company film adaptation, produced in partnership with Folger Shakespeare Library, will be specially available to WAM patrons for digital streaming June 24-27, 2021. This limited engagement is a benefit for WAM, with proceeds dedicated to furthering and deepening our accountability work.
