Directed By: Christopher King
Written By: Michelle T. Johnson
Produced By: BrainSpunk Theater

Trading Races, from Rodney King to Paula Deen” by Michelle T. Johnson is a bold look at how we relate to each other in the realm of racial identity.  Meet Eve, an abstraction of all African American people and Billy, an abstraction of all White People.  Funny, thought provoking, with an in-your-face attitude.
