Lorraine Hansberry Theatre’s spring production of Single Black Female (SBF) is a two-woman show by Lisa B. Thompson with rapid-fire comic vignettes that explore the lives of thirty-something African American middle-class women in urban America. SBF 1, an English literature professor, and SBF 2, a corporate lawyer, keep each other balanced as they search for love, clothes, and dignity in a world that fails to recognize them amongst a parade of stereotypical images. Together, they face their fears of rejection, hopes for romance, and reminisce about black girlhood wounds. While embodying a variety of characters, the multi-tasking girlfriends discuss the absurdities of interracial dating, the lure of recreational shopping, and the merits of college reunions for bolstering one’s self-esteem. After reviewing their escapades in past relationships and confessing their own mounting anxieties about commitment and the possibility of motherhood while balancing their careers, the pair realize their best chance at love may be found closer than they ever imagined.
