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.

the equiviliant of seeing a b-movie live and right before your very eyes! the jokes were funny and off color, and one could easily tell that the actors were having a blast being as outragious as possible. this play could have had more of a budget, it could have been in a better venue, it could even have had better actors, but that would take away all the fun! go see it, crap never tasted this good!

Buzzworks Theater Company announces the return of their riotous 1997 remake of Bad Seed, by Maxwell Anderson, a chilling horror story of an eight-year-old murderess who was born without pity. First opening on Broadway in 1954 and banned by the Legion of Decency because of homosexual references and questionable Freudian theories, Bad Seed asks the shocking question, “Could murder be an inherited trait?”
