Winner of TADA! Theater's 2003 One-Act Playwriting Competition in New York!

Two young women live in separated societies. One skin colour on this side. One skin colour on that side. They have never seen what the other looks like, until circumstances throw them together.

They must choose whether to perpetuate the myths about the other side or to seek out the truth. Are their differences only skin-deep?

Perfect for two advanced-level actresses of any race.
