An African-American attorney with a successful career discovers she has an Iraqi half-sister she never knew about in award-winning playwright Wendy Graf's latest work. This hard-hitting drama about family conflict and clashing cultures stars L.A Weekly and NAACP Award-winner Diarra Kilpatrick as up-and-coming corporate attorney Julie Dolan, whose carefully constructed life begins to crumble when she meets her half-sister Neyla. Neyla, a violinist, has fled Iraq to audition for Julliard, but Julie suspects there is more to her story. Graf's fresh spin on racial relations gives each of its characters their own voice and point of view as they navigate in a world that has become interconnected and multicultural on every level.

- "... a seemingly frivolous comedy is transformed into a portrait of a tough and resourceful woman. And (Samara) Frame engagingly captures both aspects of her contradictory nature." --<a target="_blank" href="http://blogs.laweekly.com/stylecouncil/stage-news/stage-raw-sarah-sarah/"> L.A.

Bad Dates is a romantic comedy about single mom and waitress Haley, a transplant from Texas to Manhattan. Haley has 600 pairs of shoes, a shaky relationship with the Romanian mob, a restaurant to run, and she's juggling all that with diving back into the dating scene. Actress Samara Frame portrays the warm and lively Haley as she recounts her dating adventures from her bedroom as she winds down from one and readies herself for the next.
