Featuring stories and themes seemingly ripped straight from today's most controversial headlines, the intense play Chocolate Covered Ants explores the complex psyche of the modern American black man. Emerging playwright Steven A. Butler Jr.'s fascinating story centers on Dr. Adrienne Taylor, a psychologist and social worker who offers therapy sessions to four very different black men. Her in-depth research reveals the complex makeup of each patient's mental state and their focus on social and physical survival. But it also begins to shape a dramatic conflict that promises to affect both herself and her patients. Equal parts gripping and provocative, Chocolate Covered Ants brings an important discussion and a moving story to D.C.'s Anacostia Playhouse.
This show is suitable for ages 13 years and up.
