"A powerful, provocative piece of theatrical writing. You want to run down the street twisting people's arms to see it." Cleveland Plain Dealer
Shelita Burns, an African-American editor, publishes Bee-Luther-Hatchee, the autobiography of a reclusive 72-year-old black woman named Libby Price. Shelita has never met Libby, and when the book wins a prestigious award she decides to deliver it to her in person. To her profound shock, the actual author of the book is not whom Shelita expected. A fascinating and provocative look at cultural appropriation and who has the right to tell someone’s story.
