“This Is Who I Am,” the tale of an estranged father and son reuniting from continents away via Zoom, will make its world premiere next month at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in downtown D.C.

The play, which will be performed and broadcast live, opens Dec. 5 and runs through Jan. 3.

Told in real time through the intimacy of a video call with humor and humanity, Amir Nizar Zuabi’s new play explores the unpredictable nature of grief and the delicacy of family connection across geographical and generational divides.

The play, directed by Evren Odcikin, streams live in association with the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University, the Guthrie Theater and Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Tickets start at $15 and are available online at woollymammoth.net, by phone at 202-393-3939, and via email at tickets@woollymammoth.net.
