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
Playwrights Jeremy Kehoe and Paul Elliott have teamed up to showcase back-to-back one-act comedies in Talkin’ It to the Streets at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood. Come prepared to laugh your bloomin’ onion off.
Kehoe, whose Los Angeles productions include Killing Russell Crowe and Ready, Aim, You’re Fired, puts the street-themed show in gear with Car Play: She & Him. Car Play tells the tale of two middle-of-the-road castaways navigating pothole-laden lives. In the lead is Jill, whose ability to suck the color from a rainbow has pushed her therapist off the psychological ledge and left her flying solo in an overcrowded world. Tailgating her is Greg, whose inability to scratch his existential itch has left him looking for answers at the oracle of Gin and Tonic (much to the chagrin of his aspiring-actor bartender, Vinny). With a Monday-morning drizzle icing their lives, Greg presses the accelerator of change, sending the two on a collision course for a partly cloudy future.
The production moves up a few flights with Elliott’s Ledge, Ledger and the Legend, recently listed as one of the 25 most produced one-act plays in the last 20 years. When Peter climbed out on that ledge to commit suicide, he thought J.M. was trying to stop him. Wrong! Who knew Suicide could be so much fun?
