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.

“There is no greater crime than abandoning your history.”
The inaugural project of West Coast Ensemble’s Diversity Outreach Initiative, Lynne Nottage’s Fabulation: or the Re-Education of Undine takes a satirical look at stereotypes at both ends of the social spectrum. Undine Barnes Calles is a successful entrepreneur at the top of her game. When her husband suddenly disappears after embezzling all of her money, Undine retreats to her childhood home in Brooklyn's Walt Whitman projects, only to discover that she must cope with a crude new reality. Undine’s riches-to-rags journey from wealthy PR diva to welfare mother is a thought-provoking comeuppance tale with a comic twist. Hailed as “clever and consistently entertaining” by Variety and “robustly entertaining” by the New York Times, Fabulation: or the Re-Education of Undine is funded in part by a generous grant from the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.
