6 1/2 Dollars: A WASP Girl's Quest for Ubuntu
(1 W) A coming-of-age comedic drama that deals with issues of race, gender, class and identity. This solo show is the story of recent college graduate and blueblood WASP, Umlungu Girl, who has just received a fellowship from Columbia University to facilitate the creation of an original musical in the township of KwaMashu near Durban, South Africa. Despite the many warnings from her catastrophist Bostonian father, she sets off, armed with good intentions, naiveté and some key intellectual literature. As Umlungu Girl progresses in her work with a local Zulu theatre company, however, she discovers that blind optimism is not quite the panacea she imagined and comes face-to-face with her own prejudices and shortcomings – all of which threaten to derail the entire project.
