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.

This is a tonally confused play, and I understand why after reading the playwright's bio. It was originally written as a one-act, nearly award-winning - and the first act was indeed very funny, even with a few too many literary allusions.
And then there was the second act. Not funny. Pretty depressing, actually. The characters who once looked quirky began to look shallow and nasty. It was a strange turn. Those three stars are for the first act, and the good acting (which managed to keep from one act to the next).
Sometimes a one-act is just a one-act.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Fielding Edlow’s <em>The Something-Nothing</em> is a hilarious, biting, highly original look at a 20-something love triangle in pre-9/11 New York City. For comedy laced with a bit of snake venom, <em>The Something-Nothing </em>can’t be beat." --stagescenela.com
From Fielding Edlow, the writer of the one-woman show Coke Free- J.A.P., is a new play about a destructive love triangle between a raging people-pleaser, Mr. sensitive ponytail man and a bossy drunk lesbian. Set in the West Village, these completely lost 27 year-old narcissists are enshrouded in a web of e-mails, poetic diatribes and gallons of Jim Beam.
