Family secrets ripple through time when three sisters in 2013 discover the truth about a young African-American woman in 1958 who realizes she can pass for white. What happens in-between is a frank and funny look at the shifting boundaries of tolerance and what identity really means.

“Thoughtful, crisp, and incredibly funny in the best tragicomic way… [Atkins's] ability to find comedy through the entire piece is excellent. Her eye for characterization and her ear for immediate, intimate dialogue are faultless.” – Seattle Star

“Both funny and chilling… Black Like Us is a sharp slice into the racial history of an American city from an unusual perspective.” – The Stranger

“Candid, compassionate and engagingly humorous” – Seattle Times

“Unlike many good plays that leave you with much to discuss over coffee after you leave the theater, I suspect this play will leave me with internal discussions and conflicts that I’ll debate for the rest of my life. Once again, the tiny little Annex Theatre on Capitol Hill has brought us a bigger, more important show than any of the giant houses in Seattle.” – Seattle Actor

The Believers

written & directed by Jim Bovino
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21, 2009 | Fri-Sat 8pm

The Believers is set in an unidentified city where life has become transformed into a series of fragmented and privatized events where the cameras are always rolling, the lights are always on, and the hero could be you.

The play examines the manufacturing of reality and questions the ability of individuals to distinguish between autonomous and enforced behavior and the possibility for original thought in a mediated world.

The play does not have a traditional plot or narrative, but is structured as a series of vignettes loosely connected by theme.
