This fast-paced affirmative action comedy examines a ‘post racial’ America. Firm Glass, is in danger of losing government contracts due to the lack of diversity in their predominantly white workplace. To combat this, they hire an African American gentleman, Trevor Washington. But when Mr. Washington fails to fill in his race on his paperwork, the office goes into a frenzy to convince Trevor to blacken the ‘correct’ bubble. As schemes get crazier and the stakes get higher, political correctness flies out the window and everyone . . . black, white, women, men, straight and gay discovers that ‘inclusion’ might be a lot more than they bargained for. Professional Stage Reading coordinated by actor/director AKIN BABATUNDE.
