Funnyhouse of a Negro is a modern classic about the student Sarah, a young black woman living in New York City and her search for her identity in a very complex, warring, and fractured world. This search is manifested in her many selves: Queen Vicoria, the Duchess of Hapsburg, Patrice Lumumba and Jesus Christ. She was a bastard child of cultures that were not her own, despite being deeply ingrained in her. Cultural Schisms and racial America are at the forefront of a play dismantling the romanticism of race and shining a light on the depth of the damage institutionalized racism has inflicted.
