Actual conversation from my 2nd day of rehearsal.
"Hey, man, I haven't met you yet. My name's Awkward Dude."
"Hi. K Lance. Nice to meet you."
"So...you were in Steak City? Doing Famous Black Play?"
"Oh, that's cool, man. Yeah, I was supposed to be in the production that we did here in the fall, but I wasn't, because, you know, I'm not colored."
"Yeah. We're not calling ourselves that anymore."
"Oh. Yeah. Right. I knew that."
End of conversation.
