Does a young comedian have to get rid of his whiteness in order to be the color he's "supposed" to be? Hear Bill Posley weigh in on the modern-day conversation about race from a unique perspective. More…
Biracial comedian Bill Posley grew up happily identifying as both black and white. But at age 10, he learned the world does, in fact, judge a book by its color and, even though he's half white, he's labeled 100% black.
“A personal, historical and vivid exploration of race relations in the US is the goal here. Unfortunately, it goes off on tangents...The piece’s dramatic achievements are diluted by the tiresome diversions...Director Bente Engelstoft positions Posley with as much verisimilitude as possible leading to a smooth presentation accompanied by adept technical elements...Posley has a winning presence, a charming delivery and is an accomplished storyteller." Full Review
for a previous production “An astounding solo performance about growing up bi-racial in America. Posley is an incredibly charming and natural performer, and he warns us straight up: white people, you may get offended...Funny, engaging, and effortlessly talented...Told honestly and with incredible humor, and using video in a simple and effective way, Posley’s story will bring tears to your eyes and have you screaming with laughter. An hour of theatre you don’t want to miss!” Full Review
