The Missing Face, a play


The Missing Face was performed Off-Broadway from April through May of 2001.

The African-American Ida Bee journeys from Milwaukee with her teenage son to the mythical African kingdom of Idu in search of her son's runaway father and the broken ancestral Ikenga staff that her own father had bequeathed to her with the mandate to find the missing half of the face. Their arrival in Idu unravels startling memories that would forever change the course of history and education of the African world with the Diaspora.
