Written as a companion piece to Amiri Baraka’s The Slave, See About the Girls continues Walker Vessel’s story presuming that Walker’s bi-racial daughters, Catherine and Elizabeth, are still alive. Set 14 years later, the one act explores the daughters’ contradicting views of their father’s actions and how it has affected them as young adults. Ultimately, the sisters must face their biggest fears as their world begins to crumble around them once again. A story of memory, family and the effects of childhood trauma, See About the Girls seeks to answer the question, “What do you do when the war is over?”.
Join us for a live reading and recording as we adapt the script into a radio play! See About The Girls will be available on audio streaming platforms in summer 2021.
