Liora Harvin's The Truth about Black Suburban Girls in NYC July 17 Before Edinburgh Fringe

From a release:

The Truth about Black Suburban Girls
Written & performed by Liora Harvin
July 17, 2011 at the 59E59 Theater, New York
part of the East to Edinburgh Festival 2011

THE TRUTH ABOUT BLACK SUBURBAN GIRLS, a play with music and dance, is Liora Harvin's autobiographical tale about growing up Black and Latina in White Suburbia.

You can see Harvin perform this often funny and poignant coming-of-age story about the search for womanhood, race and identity before she heads to Edinburgh, Scotland.

In this provocative real-life story, a girl wrestles with her Black Middle Class Latin American roots, trying to find balance between social acceptance and indvidual identity. You'll listen, laugh and cry as you hear this bittersweet story through scenes, song and dance, of a girl stumbling into womanhood amid the tree-lined streets and manicured lawns of White 1980's Suburbia.

LIORA HARVIN is a classically trained, highly skilled and talented singer, dancer, actress, voiceover artist and playwright. For more information about Harvin, visit She'll be performing it at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest August 22 - 27
