Being Black Outside

Vee and Niecy return to their childhood home after their mother dies, just in time for the end of the world--the Apocalypse--to begin. While remembering the past and debating the future, the sisters meet their mother's neighbor (a well-meaning White woman) and are forced to contend with what it means to be Black...outside. This comedic play takes a look at the absurdities and realities of living in a world that centers whiteness.
