In Full Color: The Show

In Full Color is an annual theatrical show  featuring about a dozen stories by women of color and other marginalized BIPOC, including trans and gender non-conforming folx. Every year, BIPOC artists from around the country -- and even the world! -- submit monologues, poems and short stories that give us a glimpse of what life is like in their skin. We choose a dozen to uplift, and invite musicians and dancers to share their work as well.

For most seasons, writers local to the New Jersey/New York area who want to perform their work rehearse with director Summer Dawn for a month to make their stories shine. Non-local or non-performing writers are paired with local actresses who bring their works to life. All performers and writers involved become IFC Alumni and join a kinship comprising dozens of wildly talented artists of color all over America.
