At the Hollywood Fringe online
Playwright: Somebody Jones
Director: Khadifa Wong
After a sold-out workshop at the Drayton Arms Theatre in London, BLACKWOMENDATINGWHITEMEN returns as a full Zoom production as a part of Hollywood Fringe’s Virtual Festival.
When Somebody Jones began dating a white man (something she never dreamed of doing) she found herself in uncharted territory. In an effort to find her new community, she sought out other Black/mixed women in her position. What started as a simple assignment turned into something bigger (and funnier) than she imagined.
BLACKWOMENDATINGWHITEMEN is Zoom support group featuring a collection of interviews of (you guessed it) Black women who are in long-term relationships with white men. Expect talks about privilege, activism, and the mystery of headscarves.
A completely Black/mixed female production combining verbatim, ensemble, and humor to tell a story that celebrates love in all its form
