Kerri (Virginia Tran), an Asian-American visual effects artist in Hollywood, is working on a very secret and very racially problematic project: digitally altering a white movie star to look biracial. Her white reporter bestie Viv (Claire Fazzolari) threatens to expose it all — and destroy her friend in the process.
SKIN JOBS is the third world premiere staged at the Hollywood Fringe Festival by director Lee Costello following her productions of LOS ANGELYNE and THE PORTABLE DOROTHY PARKER. She also directed the acclaimed Obama-Trump play TRANSITION, which played at HFF 2017.
