From The Same Cloth

by Megan Auster-Rosen

directed by Aaron Rossini

The jet plane is a time machine. Today I am in a timeless African story, tomorrow I am in late 20th century America. Today I am part of a novel, tomorrow this place will not exist. 

In 1971 Ken Rosen traveled to Sierra Leone with the Peace Corps, forging a deep connection with West Africa that he would weave into the rest of his life. Thirty years later his daughter Megan traveled to Ghana, searching for a similar experience, but it wasn’t until her father joined her that her eyes opened to all that surrounded her. A plane crash during his visit brought their time together to a sudden and tragic close. Built from fragments of Ken Rosen’s unfinished memoirs and the playwright’s recollections of her own experience in Africa, From the Same Cloth is Megan Auster-Rosen’s journey towards understanding her father and discovering herself. Since its run in the NYFringe, the play has been restructured and updated under the direction of Aaron Rossini and Fault Line Theatre. Megan Auster-Rosen tells her own story, playing twenty characters in addition to herself. She is joined by actor Jacques Roy as her father.
