Vena Cava Productions presents Animal Crackers
Set shortly after the 2016 election, Animal Crackers is an absurdist drama about what happens when white people assume that political correctness equates social awareness. De’Von is your average young black man home from school for fall break. Caroline, his adoptive white mother, is thrilled to have her baby back. However, after a racial slur is spray-painted onto her home, she becomes determined to prove to De’Von that the world is changing for the better, and she and De’Von’s siblings plot to catch whoever did it to make them suffer.
A staged reading of the play, produced to be a filmed and streamed offering, will be broadcast as a YouTube Premiere, allowing viewers to comment in real time about what they are seeing and offer feedback to the show's creators.
