This play was absolutely fantastic. The best play I have seen in years. There were no weak actors in the cast. I was exceptionally found of the character Flow, he totally stole the show.

Description

“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.
