The Box Marked Black:
Tales from a Halfrican-American growing up Mulatto. With sock puppets!

written and performed by Damaris Webb
directed by Debra Disbrow
dramaturgy by Ashley Hughes

What does it mean to be black?
Is it the shade of your skin? The kink of your hair? Is it learned? What is its language, both in the body and on the tongue?

The Box Marked Black is a tender solo performance piece, tracing the experience of growing up mulatto in the pre-Huxtable era. With only Jenny Willis from The Jeffersons as a guide, our multi-disciplinary storyteller creates narrative from the perspective of both sides of her interracial family, embodying multiple characters, childhood memories (including a "Roots" sock puppet re-enactment) and fantasy.

Presented at CCD Studio Theatre in the King Center on the Auraria Campus
855 Lawrence Way Denver CO 80204

Thursday November 1, 7:30pm & Friday November 2, 7:30pm
Run time 55 minutes. Please join us for a talkback following both performances
