Mulatto Math Summing Up the Race Equation in America is an edgy one woman show.  Through original music and stories of her family's history, this mixed race woman (from an African American father from the segregated south and Irish American mother from upstate New York) shares her most precious, vulnerable stories of her exploration of family, race and identity.


As an audience member, you get the have the experience of being a fly on the wall for some of the most potent and real conversations from 'the other side'.


The show is heartfelt, funny and an intimate look at race and the implications of race consciousness in America. Yes, it's one woman's story...but audiences from all backgrounds have found themselves and heard their own voices in Monique's story.


Mulatto Math: Summing Up the Race Equation in America runs at the Whitefire Theater in Sherman Oaks from March 25th- May 6th. 


It moves to the Lounge Theater in June 2018.
