BREAKDOWN
Description
When some wealthy white folks offer a big paycheck, a black historian agrees to write the definitive version of The Black Experience™. The problem is, the historian has never met another black person. What emerges is a blisteringly funny satire filled with unforgettable characters, including a brazen Barack Obama here to set the record straight, and a talk show about black people addicted to dating white people. With searing wit and bold candor, Everybody Black explores how we chronicle—and make sense of—Black History.
Everybody Black is an ensemble play where each actor will play a variety of roles. The exact breakdown will be delineated throughout the upcoming workshop and production process.
Special Skills: Actors who can rap, tap, sing a negro spiritual or impersonate Barack Obama are especially encouraged to submit.
