Now more important than ever – an edgy one woman show written and performed by the inimitable Monique DeBose. Through original music and stories of her family’s history, this mixed-race woman (from an African American father from the segregated south and Irish American mother from upstate New York) shares her most vulnerable stories around her exploration of family, race and identity. As an audience member, you get the have the experience of being a fly on the wall for some of the most potent and real conversations from ‘the other side’. A heartfelt, funny and intimate look at race and the implications of race-consciousness in America. Yes, it’s one woman’s story…but audiences from all backgrounds have found themselves and heard their own voices in Monique’s story. Directed by Denise Dowse.
Special thanks to generous grants from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission and Playhouse PALS. The BFF celebrates the range and depth of the human condition and the idea that theatre arts experiences are vital, transformative, and must be available for all.
