IN FULL COLOR
COMING MARCH 2017
What started as a little dream to find big, but often unheard voices, has taken on a power of its own.
Since it was first produced at Art House Productions in Jersey City, N.J., in 2015, the acclaimed “In Full Color” has featured about 30 women of color — including writers from the Tri-State area, California, Maryland and South Carolina — are their hilarious, poignant and unique stories.
The show has sparked conversations about diversity, prejudice, cultural exchange, mixed-race identity and other important topics. It’s covered everything from the double-edged sword of Indian domesticity and the perseverance of Latina sexuality to dating while Asian, being called a terrorist and exactly what matters about Black lives.
Women of color have long been underrepresented in theater, the arts and the mainstream media. But now, we’re taking ownership of our stories and finding ways to let our voices be heard.
We fight with our families, we fall in love, we are heroes, we are flawed. We are being shot, deported, exiled, raped, mutilated — but we are also fighting, and we are speaking. We are you. And we hope that in hearing our stories, you will see that too.
– Summer Dawn Hortillosa, Founder and Director
