Nancy

Nancy

Atlas Performing Arts Center
1333 H Street NE Washington

It's 1985 in Washington, DC and two women are trying to steer their futures-Nancy Reagan from the White House, orchestrating her husband "Ronnie's" political career according to daily astrological trends, and Esmeralda, a Navajo mother advocating for her community. Their worlds converge over an unbelievable discovery-Nancy has a direct familial connection to Pocahontas. Strange history collides with 80s nostalgia in this epic story that cuts through the veneer of shoulder pads, neon, and Van Halen with irreverent heart and deep empathy. Award-winning playwright Rhiana Yazzie makes her East Coast premiere with a very DC play about ancestry and ambition.
