After the published memoirs of an elderly black woman become a literary sensation, Shelita Burns, an ambitious young editor, and discoverer of the book, attains celebrity status in New York publishing circles. But when subsequent revelations concerning the author of the memoirs are disclosed to Shelita, she feels that her deepest self has been compromised and her career greatly imperiled. The play unfolds as an intriguing personal mystery as well as a compelling discourse on the nature of art, history, and racial prejudice.
