Hollywood, 1954. A black and white female comedy duo run the risks of satirizing Jim Crow America with their racy, edgy and racially progressive sketch comedy show. Eva Rose and Doris Jean long to become more than just television stars. Doris is determined to break out of playing only servant roles. Eva Rose is starving for proper A-list stardom and financial freedom at last. But when they are both invited to audition for the titular role in the epic film "Cleopatra," their rare friendship is put to the ultimate test.
This exciting world premiere from UH senior ShaWanna Goffney explores the fragility of genuine friendship and the painful nuances of "classic" Hollywood.
