CHARM by Philip Dawkins, directed by BJ Jones
WORLD PREMIERE: Mama Darleena Andrews, an African-American transgender woman, runs an etiquette class for LGBTQ youth. Despite their daily battles with identity, poverty, and prejudice, Mama’s powerful love and unapologetic attitude ultimately help her students find a new way to respect each other and to redefine what “having charm” means.
