“What We Look Like”

Jaris Owens and Ti Ames in rehearsal for the upcoming mainstage production of What We Look Like, directed by Professor of Theater and Africana Studies Caroline Jackson-Smith. The play, written by B.J. Tindal, ’OC 16, follows a Black family moving into the white suburbs. How will the Hodges family contend with this change, especially after eight-year-old Tommy comes home with a picture he drew of his imaginary white family? The show runs from Thursday, Feb. 7 through this Sunday, Feb. 10 at the new Irene and Alan Wurtzel Theater. Tickets are $8.
