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.

Agreed, the acting was good, the set worked. The play seemed unfinished. The subject is very important which is why my husband and I chose to attend. There was too much left unsaid, it was too short. Needs further development and depth.
<p>This comedic drama tells the story of two sisters drawn together because of domestic abuse, influencing their lives far more than they can admit to their friends and themselves. Featuring hilarious rapid-fire dialogue (written by Edward Allen Baker), the show seeks to lift the lid on abusive relationships in a way audiences can confront and think about.</p>
