Fried Chicken and Latkes w/Rain Pryor

Off Broadway Performance Art Play - Comedy — 

Fried Chicken & Latkes, written and conceived by Rain Pryor, is a hero’s journey from the standpoint of a person born into a world of “Us vs. Them” – but not quite an “us” and not quite a “them”. Told through heavy characterization and a few songs, she gives us a glimpse into the universe that was her childhood and is her life, morphing effortlessly, into the people around her, we all end up completely identifying with her story.

Rain Pryor, grew up Black and Jewish in Beverly Hills. The year was 1969, the year was shout and protest against mans inhumanity to man and, the only thing of color in Beverly Hills, were the cars people drove. Through hate, racism, fear, loss and love – Rain dives into her search for heritage and meaning by “becoming” her grandmother Bernice – discussing everything from her shana madel’s marriage to the black comedian Richard Pryor, to the fact that Jews have been Jews for six thousand seven hundred and sixty six years.
