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.

Well where to start ? The gay Mafia is a smaLL group of actors with lots of energy and good intentions... The experience is like "Ok, Judy we will show everyone and put on our own show !!" The hour long show could use some editing and quicker pacing. The skits ranged from very funny to almost embarassingly unfunny. This is really small theatre and I kept wishing we would get a sense of who the performers were but ,alas the masks were on and solidly opaque.

<p>An innovative and groundbreaking theater company, The Gay Mafia is the first of its kind in L.A. and has proved provocatively funny for gay and straight alike. The Gay Mafia has had its share of controversy with its take-no-prisoner style comedy, skewering everything from Ted Haggard and Mary Cheney, to the war on terror, lesbian space aliens, and retired gay Navy Seals.</p>
