Written by Mahogany L. Browne
directed by Kat Yen

Based on the poetry from Mahogany’s most recent book of the same name, SMUDGE is a staged choreopoem offering a powerful, intimate, and complex portrait of a girl who deserves more than what she is given: a world in which our hero is both painfully invisible and vulnerably exposed. Mahogany L. Browne was nominated for the 2015 NAACP Image award for Outstanding Literary Work in Poetry and is a Cave Canem and Poets House alumnae and a Serenbe Focus Fellow. Her poetic play REDBONE: A Biomythography premiered in Poetic License 2014.
