Painted Bride (5212 Market St. 19139)
Sarah paints every day in her childhood home – until an interstellar body annihilates her peace of mind. COMET is a solo performance and art exhibition about a Black woman and her father. How can you grow up when stuck in the vacuum of a child’s place, unseen and unheard?
Show runs for one hour, no intermission.
