BLACK VIRGINS ARE NOT FOR HIPSTERS is Echo Brown's critically acclaimed solo show. The show was named one of the top ten best shows of 2015 by Rob Hurwitt of the SF Chronicle and Sam Hurwitt of KQED. It was also nominated for Outstanding Solo Production by Theatre Bay Area Awards in 2015. The show ran for 15 months at the Marsh Theater in San Francisco and Berkeley.
As the show opens, 23 year-old Echo is about to lose her virginity to a good-looking white hipster that she met on Craigslist. During the quickly dwindling hour before the fateful meeting, Echo bounces between desire and anxiety and reflects on the sociopolitical implications of her predicament. Will this white hipster find Echo's dark skin and African features attractive? Can Echo transcend her own negative inner dialogue about her beauty and self-worth? How will cultural differences between Echo and the white hipster impact their encounter?
