Recipe for a Sellout: A Staged Reading
Book and Lyrics by Parade Stone
Music by Sequoia Sellinger
Sequoia Sellinger is thrilled to music direct and present a staged reading of her original musical on August 19th at S. Oxford Space in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
Sydney, a young African American woman struggling to stay afloat in a sea of student loan debt and exorbitant rent is given a contentious job offer; working on the campaign team of a Republican senator. During days of struggling to write an acceptance or rejection email, Sydney consults her two best friends at their second job, Earth Mother Grocery, while experiencing visceral reoccurring dreams of three seemingly white 1950s housewives. As the housewives attempt to coerce her into joining their world in the kitchen, the line between Sydney’s reality and subconscious blur.
