DISSONANCE Two friends, twenty years, one difficult conversation.

July 8, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


On the heels of summer 2020, can a black woman and a white woman have an honest, civil, and candid discussion about race? Can a friendship survive the brutal honesty of differing experiences?

Dissonance is a two-woman play about race, love, and friendship. Angela and Lauren have been friends for more than 20 years. They met in graduate school, became godmothers to each other’s children, and are now starting a new business. As they open their cafe in a historic black neighborhood in Pensacola, Florida, they uncover deeply-held perceptions that threaten to dismantle their friendship.

Dissonance is a heart-warming conversation that explores the national hurt following George Floyd’s murder and how it impacts both black and white American women.
