Miss Understood, the Glamazon of Flint, Michigan, is the birthday entertainment for her 5-year old nephew. In the course of the monologue, she entertains you, her gurlfriends, with her dance moves and her fondness for the X-Men mutant Bishop, and gives her thoughts on a variety of topics including racism, white privilege and American aggression overseas. She's fierce, fabulous, and a bit trashy.
A monologue structured like a drag show and cabaret show, with singing, dancing, politics, Pringles, drinking, and trash-talking. And also a fire-safety exercise!
M, Drag, Black/African-American, any size, late 20s-30s.
