About this show

Lynn Nottage's play, Fabulation: Or the Re-Education of Undine, is directed by Ben Campbell as the inaugural project of West Coast Ensemble's Diversity Initiative. The play is a satirical look at stereotypes at both ends of the social spectrum. Undine Barnes Calles is a successful African American entrepreneur at the top of her game. When her husband suddenly disappears after embezzling all of her money, Undine retreats to her childhood home in Brooklyn's Walt Whitman projects, only to discover that she must cope with a crude new reality. Undine's riches-to-rags journey is a thought-provoking comeuppance tale with a comic twist.
