A young Caucasian playwright pens a play under a pseudonym about growing up poor and African-American. When a major theater festival wants to do his play, he hires an African-American actress to “play” the playwright. His boyfriend can’t talk him out of it, his best friend can’t talk him out of it, and the actress herself has doubts. But the plan proceeds with some hilarious results. An important play, funny and powerful, as questions of prejudice and acceptance lurk beneath the comedy.
