Bi-racial 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.
Part of Soho Playhouse's 2018 Fringe Encore Series.

See it if you're drawn to the compelling, timeless, deeply personal topic of racial identity—esp when it's one imposed on you vs how you see yourself.
Don't see it if you'd be uncomfortable hearing of & seeing graphic examples of racist behavior; you expect theatre setting; this is in a tiny, cramped bar.
See it if You want a hilarious first hand perspective of growing up biracial. I was touched by how he shared his political awakening to prejudice.
Don't see it if You are sensitive to racism and don't enjoy joking about it. Or feel self conscious and uncomfortable with exploring the race issue.
