The Future Now
a triple bill featuring:

a performance lecture by visual artist Alexia Stamatiou

FUFU & OREOS
a solo show written and performed by Obehi Janice
When Obehi is diagnosed with clinical depression, she begins to wonder if she’s BLACK enough, NIGERIAN enough, and has enough faith. With inventive prose and incredible wit, FUFU & OREOS stakes a claim for the power of voice in our search for self.

Tryouts
a new play by Adara Meyers
directed by Cecelia Raker
When a group of mothers and daughters attempt to prove their “individuality,” the murky waves of love and death crash against generational angst and pseudo-religious understanding in this satirical play about womanhood.

Dramaturg Ilana Brownstein will moderate the post-show discussion on March 8.

Tickets: $15 at the door or online.
