The Colored Museum

The Second Dramat Fall Ex

by George C. Wolfe

Poster of The Colored Museum

Miss Pat, the flight attendant on “Celebrity Slave Ship” meets Miss Roj, “a snap queen” who rejects the limitations of respectability politics. Two wig stands argue about the politics of hair. A girl gives birth to an egg. Stereotypes are exposed and exploded in eleven exhibits that satirize how the world sees and interprets “otherness.” The Colored Museum is an experimental play that straddles various versions of reality while navigating what it means to be a person of color in America. It rebuts understandings of culture that are monolithic or existent within vacuums. The Colored Museum makes room for joy, laughter, and a piercing pain . It navigates identity in a way that is aware of the nuanced nature of oppressive systems. It inverts the silencing of the individual by placing each narrative/exhibit on center stage. The Colored Museum tells the story of a community fighting to come to terms with both history and present while seeking definitions of freedom.
