Lillian Brown will perform ‘The OREO Complex’ in Washington, D.C.

Assistant Professor of Theatre Lillian Brown will take her solo performance of “The OREO Complex” to Washington, D.C., in May and June for 10 performances. Written and performed by Brown, the show tells the story of OREO Girl, a black woman navigating predominantly white institutions. For her, it is a voyage to be seen as authentically human, despite obstructions from a community who wants to put her in a box.

What does an unapologetic performance of blackness look like in a space where you are underrepresented and very often stereotyped? Through poetry, song and dance, “The OREO Complex” unravels a variety of topics including: representation, stereotypes, assimilation and microaggressions.

Show dates are May 20-June 2 at Caos on F, 923 F St. NW. Ticket information is available here.
