Oberon K.A. Adjepong as Papa (THE HOMECOMING QUEEN, Crown Heights) and Lisa Ramirez (TO THE BONE, EXIT CUCKOO) as MJ's Mom / Neighbor join the previous announced cast of Good Grief starring playwright Ngozi Anyanwu (HBO's "The Deuce") as Nkechi, Nnamdi Asomugha (Amazon's Crown Heights and former All-Pro NFL Player) as Bro, Patrice JohnsonChevannes (THE HOMECOMING QUEEN, THE CRUCIBLE) as NeNe, Hunter Parrish("Weeds," GODSPELL, SPRING AWAKENING) as JD, Ian Quinlan("The Long Road Home," "Gotham," "Sneaky Pete," THE LION KING) as MJ.

The design team includes scenic design by Emmy Award-winner Jason Ardizzone-West(NBC's JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR), costume design by Andy Jean (Santa Fe Opera), lighting design by Oona Curley (THE HOMECOMING QUEEN), and sound design by Daniel Kluger (MARVIN'S ROOM). David Anzuelo serves as fight director.

Nkechi was a good Nigerian-American girl. She did everything right. Went to med school. Made plans. Then life happened. And plans changed. A first-generation coming-of-age journey of love, loss, and growing into adulthood, Good Grief follows Nkechi as she navigates Pennsylvania's suburbs alongside her childhood crush, her would-be-philosopher brother, and her immigrant parents. Hailed as a "profound dramatic work" by LA Weekly, this hilarious and heartbreaking new play reunites playwright Ngozi Anyanwu and director Awoye Timpo following their acclaimed collaboration on THE HOMECOMING QUEEN.
