Mulatto's Dilemma Advances to Semi-Finals in Strawberry One Act Festival

February 17, 2008—The Strawberry One Act Festival Director Van Dirk Fisher announced today that Mulatto's Dilemma is advancing to the festival's semi-finals performing on Tuesday, Feb. 19, and Wednesday Feb. 20 at the American Theatre of Actors, 314 West 54 Street between 7th and 8th Avenue. Show time is 7:30pm.
"It's an honor to have the opportunity to perform this character again," said Juliette Fairley, who wrote the play and portrays the lead role of Annique Brick. Mulatto's Dilemma is about a bi-racial woman who lived in the 1920s and traveled between the American South, the Harlem Renaissance and France while struggling with racism from white bigots, snobbism from the black bourgeoisie, and chauvinism from men.
Cast includes Amaalah El-Amin, Danny Boushebel, Kelvin Hale, Sheldon Shaw and Susan Neuffer.
The play features music from Bessie Smith, Edith Piaf and authentic costumes from the Roaring Twenties. Mulatto's Dilemma will compete against 4 other plays in semi-final series 3.
