BLACK WOMEN DATING WHITE MEN, is a timely, entertaining verbatim piece which draws upon numerous important issues in a short period of time - and does so with subtlety and grace. Translating perfectly onto zoom (and online performance), it presents itself as a cluster of conversations between Black women who happen to be dating white men. Black Women Dating White Men is expertly crafted by Somebody Jones, bringing moments of great comedy but also sincerity. Due to the nature of the conversation, it is the kind of theatre that we NEED to be watching right now. ... full review

An excellent, engaging play that weaves in the real interviews of Black women in long-term relationships with white men into a Zoom hang out with friends.

Great writing, acting, directing/editing, this is one that I'm looking forward to seeing how this is adapted back to stage. ... full review
