ABOUT THE PLAY

Can a Black Woman get white male privilege? Let's find out! Michelle is inches away from landing her dream job at 'Avocado Nation' - the new SNL-like show for millennials. But as a Black woman in the comedy world, she consistently faces emerging challenges at every level amidst the pressure to be "twice as good". Determined to get ahead, no matter what, Michelle decides what she really needs is white male privilege- and she figures out one hell of a way to get it. This fun, campy, dramedy takes the audience on a wild journey as Michelle struggles to find her true self.
