HOODED or Being Black for Dummies November 17 – December 2, 2018 by Tearrance Arvell Chisholm, directed by Thomas W. Jones II
HOODED is a breathtakingly subversive dead-serious comedy that unwraps what is no laughing matter: race relations in America and the peril young Black men are in.
Street savvy Tru thinks preppie adoptee Marquis has lost his “blackness” and pens a manual entitled Being Black for Dummies as they navigate a world of cheerleaders, Black Lives Matter, 2Pac, identity politics, Nietzsche, the police, and Apollo.
20-something Tearrance Arvell Chisholm finished Julliard’s playwriting program in May of 2018. His plays, Br’er Cotton and Hooded have received productions throughout America and in England.

Hooded is part of Mixed Blood’s PRESCIENT HARBINGERS trilogy: three plays glued together by an African American male prism, through contrast, and via Second Amendment violations.
