DISSONANCE

Two Women. Twenty Years. One Difficult Conversation.

Written by and Starring Marci J. Duncan and Kerry Sandell


Angela, a Black woman, and Lauren, a White woman, have been friends for 20 years. They met in graduate school, became godmothers to each other's children, and most recently, started a new business, but they have never had a candid conversation about race…until now. As they open their cafe in a historically Black neighborhood, they uncover deeply held perceptions about race and must decide if being brutally honest and devastatingly vulnerable is worth the risk of their friendship's potential end. On the heels of George Floyd's murder and the summer of 2020, these women allow themselves to have the hard conversation and become closer than ever in result. Directed by James Webb, DISSONANCE has been described as "a roll up your sleeves, dig in for the long haul, and show the whole of your heart moment for both actors—and they deliver tenfold."
Tickets: $45
