Talkin' 'Bout My Generation

Following innumerable post-show discussions, personal requests and individual interviews, Will & Company has created its third One Person production in our multicultural and socially diverse Faces of America series.

This new play presents characters requested by the next generation of college audiences from the entire United States. These are the topics they want discussed. These are the diversity issues they feel need to be addressed. These are their challenges.

 

The list of characters is as follows:

 

Two Spirit - a Native American 'bade' talks of the constant abuse she must endure as a transgender off the reservation.

Black Man Walking - a black, NYU graduate student is falsely accused of a crime and discovers the horrific racism prevalent in America's justice system.

 

Veiled Intent - a Muslim-American student addresses the American fear of the hijab and the place of Arab Americans in the United States in a post 911 generation.

Mija - a Latina single mother, college student struggles with her desire for a career, motherhood and the cultural expectations placed upon her.

 

Body Image - an Asian-American student talks of being trapped by anorexia and the demands made on American women with regards to body image.

 

Stigma - an autistic college student, bruised by free speech demanding comedians and cyberbullying, asks for empathy for the intellectually disabled.
