UNGRATEFUL DAUGHTER: One Black Girl's Story of Being Adopted into a White Family . . . that aren't Celebrities.
>> Written and performed by Lisa Marie Rollins
Originally Directed by W. Kamau Bell
In a rush of electrifying story-telling, spoken word poetry and hilarious, unexpected characterizations, Lisa Marie reveals a sometimes disturbing picture of what it's like to attend an almost exclusively white, private school; expresses her fierce love for her conservative, Republican, Christian, organic farmer parents and addresses the new breed of well-meaning, white, liberal adoptive parents that strain her patience . . . repeatedly.
TWO SUITCASES AND A TON OF EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE
>> Written and Performed by Vanessa Alabarces
Directed by Martha Rynberg
Vanessa's straight-A-smart, flat-out gorgeous, pee-in-your-pants funny, and she has no idea what to do with her life. But she's figuring it out. Sort of. She's moving to LA, changing her name, and pursuing a comedy career. But first she has to purge some junk - and it's not all nicknacks and Ikea furniture. So, Vanessa's having a garage sale, and she needs to figure out what to let go of and what she will hold on to, if anything.
