True Identity

Post-Industrial Productions is excited to present a staged reading of a new play by Quinn D. Eli, performed one night only at the Alleyway Theatre Cabaret!


A real-life adventure is taking place inside Damascus Comics. But there are no superheroes around to save the store’s African-American proprietor, Ramir, after his oldest friend and only employee, a white woman named Beth, attracts the frenzied attention of protestors and reporters in a case caught live on video: spotting two white children traveling in a car with a black man, Beth becomes convinced the children are in danger and calls the police, setting off a series of events that threatens the store she runs with Ramir, jeopardizes their relationship, and demands in the end an enormous price for Living While Black.
