THE SHIPMENT

A play by Young Jean Lee

 

September 3-19, 2015

 

Presented by Black Ops Theatre & Little Green Pig in association with Common Ground Theatre

 

A scathing comedy that walks "the line between stock forms of Black entertainment and some unidentifiable weirdness."

 

Written by a Korean-American playwright who asked her cast of five actors:

 

  • What stereotypes they had to deal with as Black performers
  • What roles they'd always wanted to play

 

The result is a variety show that will trouble and delight you.

 

Featuring

Johanna Rose Burwell, Drina Dunlap, Jacqueline Markham, Ron Lee McGill & Lazarus Simmons
