Funnel Cake Flowers & The Urban Chameleons written by HaJ and directed by Ayoka Chenzira Fresh from the Atlanta Fringe Festival, this young urban black woman turns her autobiography into an interactive exposé of black-white relations by outing the lives of people of color who, as code-switchers, choose when to reveal their accents and attitudes in front of white people, creating a shocking and hysterical Saturday Night Live style mock of the human condition while "living in color in a white man's world."
Showhouse a new comedy-drama written and directed by Washington, D.C. native Linda Sherbert When a perfection-obsessed interior designer becomes chair of a decorator showhouse, she must work side-by-side with both her estranged architect-husband and his mistress. Needless to say, putting all three under one roof takes a toll on both décor and decorum. "Perfection" goes out the window!
