Community College of Baltimore County Performing Arts presents Fabulation or, The Re-Education of Undine by Lynn Nottage March 17 – 21, 2022 in the F. Scott Black Theatre, CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Boulevard.

Fabulation is a social satire about an ambitious and haughty African-American woman, Undine Barnes Calles, whose husband suddenly disappears after embezzling all of her money. Pregnant and on the brink of social and financial ruin, Undine retreats to her childhood home in Brooklyn’s Walt Whitman projects, only to discover that she must cope with a crude new reality. Undine faces the challenge of transforming her setbacks into small victories in a battle to reaffirm her right to be. Fabulation is a comeuppance tale with a comic twist.
