In these three pieces, the award-winning writer and performer celebrates the power of words to rescue the young black women she portrays from their constricted worlds.In the Obie Award-winning play Beautys Daughter, Diane yearns to free herself from her soul-deadening surroundings, where people drown their unfulfilled aspirations in drugs and alcohol.

In Monster, Theresa imagines a life in the rock-n-roll poetry bohemia of Manhattans Lower East Side and away from her home in East Harlem, where she is scorned as a misfit. And in The Gimmick, Alexis escapes her brutal reality among the library bookshelves, where she dreams of becoming a writer in Paris.

Charged with fearless wisdom, these three electrifying plays transform rage-filled ghetto experience into a triumph of rhapsodic expression.
