THE NEW YORK PREMIERE OF
THE CLARK DOLL
written by LIZ MORGAN
directed by TYLER THOMAS
Three black women find themselves confined to a space; the kind that doesn't allow visitors. It isn't the first time but hopefully, it will be the last. Natasha wants to escape for good; Judi wants to sleep; and Sophia just doesn't want to end up left alone. Meanwhile, this trio of "sistas" will do what they can to survive their circumstances and each other.
Stage Managed by Madison Burnes
Starring Shelley Fort*, Marion Grey, and TanyaMaria
