"...a tour de force." -- DC Theatre Arts
SPADURA is written and performed by Dahéli Hall, an acclaimed comedian, writer, and director residing in Los Angeles. It unapologetically takes on the baby industrial complex, aging, the physical, emotional, and financial cost of IVF, as well as the unique fertility obstacles faced by Black women in America.
Through a mix of stand-up, storytelling, and props, Dahéli includes personal anecdotes about herself, her Filipino husband and her Caribbean parents.
She candidly shares her journey trying to conceive their Ja-Haitia-Pino
American baby. Her humor and vulnerability make the show unforgettable.
**Please note the show will be recorded for an upcoming documentary.
