Recipe for a Sellout is a new musical by Parade Stone & Sequoia Sellinger about Sydney, a young African American woman struggling to stay afloat in a sea of student loan debt and exorbitant rent. After a long, disappointing job search she is given a contentious job offer. It’s the kind of position that represents the ultimate 2019 betrayal; 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. Recipe for a Sellout forces its woke, 21st century heroine to question the cost of following (or compromising) her dreams.
