Esther Friedman's one woman show, Random Sharp Objects: The Story of How I Got the Past out of My Ass, gives new insight into what it really means to grow up bi-racial in America. Her parents, a laconic Jewish Dad and a wise cracking African American mother, are stars in this dramedy in which Esther determines the answer to why she won't date black men. Esther Friedman has accomplished a lovely thing: through her writing and performance she makes the universal specific. She takes us on a journey of transformation. She makes us laugh and cry with the details of her life.
