Strong Language 

“The development of ‘Fried Chicken & Latkes’ has been cathartic and this fully mounted version is the culminating event,” said Rain Pryor. “With Kamilah’s vision and the talent of a top-notch creative team, the June premiere marks the first time the show is more than me, a black curtain and a couple of black boxes. Thank the ancestors for creatives!”

 

Writer & Performer:

Rain Pryor

Director:

Kamilah Forbes

The hilariously, irreverent and poignant “Fried Chicken & Latkes” is Rain Pryor's one woman theatrical, cabaret-styled show based on her life growing up Black and Jewish. Pryor plays the 11 characters most pivotal to her life and takes her audience on a musical journey through the late 60s, 70s and 80s and some little-known family history. Along the way she offers a unique perspective on race, identity and the loss of her iconic father Richard Pryor.
