      The Trial . . .

      This satirical play by Karani Marcia Leslie is set up as a mock trial of black female identityspecifically the jovial, asexual and servile mammy, along with the hyper-sexualized Jezebel-like Safreeta Mae stereotypes, which the main character charges, are actually based on television, advertising and the movies, not reality. And it is these stereotypes that have impeded her success in making it up the entertainment industrys corporate ladder. Interestingly, the playwright herself was an editor and staff writer for CBS, NBC and Fox, with credits that also include The Cosby Show and Parenthood. All sales are final.
