A man’s tireless search for his missing left hand culminates in an explosive confrontation with two small-time con artists and a nosy, gun shy hotel receptionist. Is Martin McDonagh’s recent Broadway comedy a dark and violent modern farce- or a study on America’s problems with racism?

With unstoppable Headmistress Dorothy Hyman in charge (and doubling as Ahab!) and all of the young women playing the rest of the parts, and using anything they can find from the school as props, you’ll see how this hilarious musical comedy became a cult favorite during its run in London’s West End.

Marquis and Tru are both fourteen year old black boys, but they exist in two totally different worlds. Marquis is a book smart prep-schooler living in the affluent suburb of Achievement Heights; while Tru is a street savvy kid from deep within the inner city of Baltimore. Their worlds overlap one day in a holding cell. Tru decides that Marquis has lost his “blackness” and pens a how-to manual entitled “Being Black for Dummies”. He assumes the role of professor, but Marquis proves to be a reluctant pupil. They butt heads, debate, wrestle and ultimately prove that Nietzsche and 2pac were basically saying the same thing.
