TRAVIS

IN DEVELOPMENT

Next season 22/23 Well Made Productions comes with Travis; with our new full-length theater performance, we add a fourth part to the international Raisin Cycle. This series of performances, consisting of A Raisin in the Sun, Clybourne Park, and Benethea’s Place, in which the black identity in the West plays a central role, was performed by us in the Netherlands for the first time.

Travis starts from the youngest generation of A Raisin in the Sun. Grandson Travis, then a teenager and now middle-aged, looks back on his family history. He once left his hometown of Chicago for Europe. His wanderings around the world have given him perspectives on the lives of black people in America and Europe. The fact that his granddaughter Nola (born from the Afro-European diaspora) has different ideas and perspectives provides an interesting perspective on the importance of being at home, family burden, the black voice, and one’s own dream.
