“Beyond Skin Deep”
Director: Emily Twines
Producer: Blue Pearl Theatrics
Cast: Ryan Dempsey, Margaret McDuffy, Chris Witherspoon, Liana Afuni
What does it feel like to have people assume your child isn’t your own because of the color of her skin? What does it mean to have people assume you are her au pair because of yours? In a considerate exploration of latent racial prejudice and identity politics, playwright Stacey Larkins addresses these questions through the deceptively simple scenario of a walk in the park.
Performed February 25 – 26 at The Physics Theatre as part of the show Defiance: A Catalogue of Dynamic Narratives.
