Genesis Festival of New Plays - Dinner
By Lisa B. Thompson
Genesis Festival of New Plays – returns in February 2020 for staged readings of new works in the studio at the NBPAC – and highlights the work of Lisa B. Thompson, writer of popular Crossroads hit, Single Black Female in a special Genesis: Spotlight. Other works by Ricardo Khan and Pia Wilson. The Genesis Festival is a playwright laboratory experience that consists of three separate shows of stage readings for the audience to enjoy and critique.
Dinner is an insightful and comedic look at the inter-cultural dynamics between African Americans and Africans when two families meet to celebrate their children’s unexpected engagement. This play asks not "who's coming to dinner" but what's on the political and cultural menu when the African Diaspora gathers to dine.
