By Lynn Nottage

Directed by Vickie Washington

Fabulation is a social satire about an ambitious and haughty African-American woman, Undine Barnes Calles, whose husband suddenly disappears after embezzling all of her money. Pregnant and on the brink of social and financial ruin, Undine retreats to her childhood home in Brooklyn’s Walt Whitman projects, only to discover that she must cope with a crude new reality. Undine faces the challenge of transforming her setbacks into small victories in a battle to reaffirm her right to be. FABULATION is a comeuppance tale with a comic twist.

“A self-made woman bumps roughly down the social ladder in this lively, loose-limbed satiric fable…clever and consistently entertaining, stocked with funny set pieces…” –Variety

“…a sprawling, picaresque play…robustly entertaining…punchy social insights and the firecracker snap of unexpected humor.” –NY Times
