by Robert O'Hara
directed by Akin Babatunde
Robert O’Hara’s wildly imaginative, incendiary satire is a kaleidoscope of sketches that portray growing up gay and African-American. With variety-show vivacity, outrageous humor, and real heart and soul, it tests how we talk about human desire and racial stereotypes at home, in church, and on the corner.
