Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm's "breathtakingly on-point" ("Washington Post") comedy "Hooded, Or Being Black for Dummies" returns for a special encore remount after its sold-out run became one of the first breakout D.C. hits of 2017. This irreverent examination of growing up Black in America features two unlikely allies -- Marquis and Tru.

This searing satire, which just won the Charles MacArthur Award for Outstanding Original New Play, is back to challenge notions, break boundaries and leave you questioning your own perceptions of race.
