Cream Soda & Creme de Menthe written and directed by Caleen Sinnette Jennings
Performed by Rachel Foley
It's the fall of 1962, and Jacqueline Marie Butler walks a tightrope between two worlds. In her black neighborhood, she and her friends jump double dutch, make up routines to the Supremes, and sip cream soda. In her progressive, Greenwich Village school she and he white friends read Hesse, debate political issues, and sip Creme de Menthe. This newly expanded comedy explores race, class and coming of age in the 60s.
