Beauty on the Vine

From mixed-race identities to extreme plastic surgery, Beauty on the Vine is a modern fable exploring the power of the human face in hothouse America

When a young female star of right-wing radio is brutally murdered, her husband and father investigate the reasons behind the violence

They discover a world where young women transform themselves to look like their idols, and mothers lose their daughters to the illusion of popularity and power " ... provocatively imagines emulative cosmetic surgery taking hold among young women across the country" ~ NY Times

"This is vital, ambitious theatre ... a play of big ideas. America's fascination with celebrity culture and personal reinvention, the bonds between parents and children (or lack thereof) and the never-ending war between Democrats and Republicans all get touched upon" ~
