Saturday Buriel Clay Theater 2pm


Andre Willis wants nothing more than to be taken seriously as an actor. There’s just one thing. He’s black and that’s all that the casting directors see. Sick and tired of stereotypical roles and typecasting in Hollywood, Andre decides to audition for a television
remake of “Glengarry Glen Ross” in whiteface. After landing the role, the show becomes a sensation. But for Andre, the fame comes with a price. He feels that he is sacrificing his racial identity for a successful career. After witnessing a young fan mimic
him, he can no longer mask the guilt and shame he feels. He walks away from the fame and fortune with the hopes of producing his own content.
