About this show

Booty Candy, written and directed by Robert O'Hara, is an irreverent series of ten short comic plays dealing with such topics as childhood sexual development, religious hypocrisy, color blind casting, gay sex, reparations for slavery, genitalia, and August Wilson. Other short plays, in addition to the titular show, include: "Dreamin' In Church," in which a minister comes out the closet to his congregation; "Scenework," a comic look at two white grad school actors rehearsing a scene from A Raisin in the Sun; "Dirt," about a college student who takes a commencement day speaker hostage; "Cluck," a satiric look at a court battle over slavery reparations; and "The Beauty In Queens, Jackson Heights," in which a black family living in the ghetto await a call from Broadway.
