The surreal and symbolic play Funnyhouse of a Negro delves into issues of race and identity. Sarah, the main character, is young black student in New York City. Her fractured identity is made up of several other characters including Queen Victoria, Jesus, Patrice Lumumba and the Duchess of Hapsburg. Throughout the one act play, Sarah struggles to accept or reject herself. Two of her identities are white women, while the other are men. None of the identities she creates for herself reflect who she really is.
