Brava in association with Black Artists Contemporary Cultural Experience present
An American Ma(u)l

Written by Robert O’Hara
Directed by Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe

OCTOBER 18 – NOVEMBER 11, 2018
Brava Theater Center Studio

America is on the brink of economic disaster. But the newly-elected prez has a plan! Dr. Eli Whitney IV has invented a new form of cotton that will revolutionize the garment industry, but there’s one small snag – it needs to be handpicked. And the president knows just who to press into service to pick it!

Robert O’Hara’s hilarious and scathing political satire explores the eerily timely proposition of what happens to an America in the face of an administration and a populous that will resort to drastic measures, like the revocation of our most treasured freedoms and protections, to save a failing economy. An American Ma(u)l turns its lens on two families, the Jeffersons and the Washingtons, as they struggle to survive in a “new” racially divided America.
