Mosaic Theater Company:
Hooded, Or Being Black for Dummies
By Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm
Directed by Serge Seiden
Back by popular demand, Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm’s “breathtakingly on-point new comedy” (Washington Post) returns for a special encore remount after its sold-out run became one of the first breakout DC hits of 2017. This irreverent examination of growing up Black in America features two unlikely allies—Marquis and Tru. Suspecting that Marquis has lost his “blackness,” Tru pens a manual entitled Being Black for Dummies which sends the two on a whirlwind journey through a world of cheerleaders, 2Pac, Nietzsche, Apollo, and Dionysus.
“A PERFECT SHOW…’brilliant’ is barely adequate.” (DC Theatre Scene)
