SWEET TEA

SWEET TEA is based on the award-winning and critically acclaimed book of the same title and it starred it's writer, E. Patrick Johnson. The play is a one-man exploration into the southern black gay community. A fascinating, validating oral history inspired by the author’s personal journey, Sweet Tea explores the perceptions, angst, triumphs and vulnerabilities of this minority within a minority. With passion and insight, Johnson reinforces the spoken-word tradition while challenging stereotypes – and finding humor, humanity and hope within.

 

Directed by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, the piece was presented at Signature Theatre. For more information, click here.
