“What kinda name is that?” Zenobia has been battling this question and other micro aggressions for the three decades she’s been an actor in New York City. Now she’s wondering – leaving her family behind in India, giving up any chance of a normal personal life, and enduring audition after audition where no one could tell “what she is” – was it all worth it? Presented by Congressional Honoree Hypokrit Theatre Company and performed by award-winning actor Zenobia Shroff, How to Succeed is a play about the paths we choose and the lives we don’t.
