Charm (MCC Theater @ The Lucille Lortel)

September 18, 2017


By Philip Dawkins
Directed by Will Davis

When Mama Darleena Andrews– a 67-year-old, black, transgender woman — takes it upon herself to teach an etiquette class at Chicago’s LGBTQ community center, the idealistic teachings of Emily Post clash with the very real life challenges of identity, poverty and prejudice faced by her students. Inspired by the true story of Miss Gloria Allen and her work at Chicago’s Center on Halsted, Philip Dawkins’ CHARM asks – how do we lift each other up when the world wants to tear us down?
