2 Black women, one older, one younger. Both characters play multiple characters, animals and ages.
The egg that created you was formed inside your mother, in the womb of your grandmother. The blood that courses in your veins is the result of your predecessors' unions. The trauma that was forced upon your ancestors becomes the ghost that haunts their grandchildren becomes the illness that walks invisible in your body. The only way through it is to confront it or force it upon the next generation. Your child.
Bloodlines: A Nesting Doll is a ghost story about multi-generational trauma, invisible illness, matrilineality and the strength we inherit from the women we come from.
