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.

Reviews & Ratings
Love is a battlefield … and DITCH is a whimsical new comedy that delights in an irreverent and humorous look at the trials and tribulations of love, and relationships. Who we love and who we try desperately not to love determines much of where we go in life. William and Beth are two people who grapple from within for their truest selves, and for the ability to love honestly.
