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.

Quotes & Highlights
- “You’ll howl with delight as this happy-faced duo launches into absurd medleys … a delightfully god-awful lounge act riotously over the top.”
—<em>LA Weekly </em>
- "The show. . .is not just awful — it's awfully entertaining." —<em>Minneapolis Star Tribune</em>
Starring Judy Heneghan and Michael Halpin
With Peter Staloch and the Swizzle Stick Dancers
Experience Martini and Olive’s whistlestop medleys of hit 1970s pop songs, played out by two characters in costumes that should be considered crimes against humanity and backed up by a trio of middle-aged tap dancers whose credo is “overmedicated and ready to rock.”
See what the St. Paul Pioneer Press called “such deliciously, marvelously, intentionally appalling stuff that you’ll find yourself alternately holding your head in your hands and wiping tears of laughter out of your eyes. Shaken or stirred, Martini & Olive are a heck of a cocktail. These people know how to make us laugh. First time I saw them… I laughed so hard I also gave myself a hernia.”
