The Exponential Festival and The Brick present
God and All Her Children
by Anike Sonuga
January 15, 2022
The summer before their senior year of high school, two boys come to God’s porch to process life and the impending future.
God played by Floria Foote, Gigi played by Gabriel Generally, D played by Jonathan Lorenzo Price, writer director & producer Anike Sonuga, associate producer Kyla Jeanne
It’s August. The summer before senior year. It’s too hot to do anything and too close to the beginning of school to go anywhere else, so D and Gigi spend their days hanging out with God, a woman who has lived in their neighborhood so long that no one knew what else to call her. D and Gigi have been friends for years, but when Gigi receives an offer to play football at a school across the country, disagreement arises. D and Gigi come to God’s porch to process life and discuss their experiences with religion, family, and community.

THE EXPONENTIAL FESTIVAL
JANUARY’S BROOKLYN-BASED THEATRE FESTIVAL
~ A pleasure, a mess, a thrill, and a dream. ~
Exponential is a month-long January festival dedicated to New York City-based emerging artists working in experimental performance. The participants in this multi-artist, multi-venue festival are committed to ecstatic creativity in the face of commercialism. Exponential is driven by inclusiveness and a diversity of artists, forms, and ideas coupled with utopian resource-sharing, mentoring and the championing of risky, rigorous work in eclectic fields. theexponentialfestival.org
Anike Sonuga is an artist born in the Bay Area, raised in Georgia and Baltimore, and now based in Brooklyn.
