The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search for God

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s short story, this side-splitting comedy follows a young African girl who is abandoned by a white missionary for asking too many questions about God. Taking matters into her own hands, she sets off on her own to find out who—or what—God really is. Along the way she meets a number of characters who have very different views on God. In the end she’s forced to make her own decisions on God and her search.

This work is made possible through the support of the Creative Fusion artist residency program, a program of the Cleveland Foundation.
