About This Show

This wickedly funny and dark carnival tale is based on the true story of a famed freakshow highlight in Victorian London. Stolen from her native Africa, the Venus Hottentot became the sensation of both the London social and medical scene because of her…um…enormous posterior. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, this powerful story of race, science and chocolates by Suzan-Lori Parks, the country’s leading Black, female playwright, is not to be missed.
