By Philana Omorotionmwan

Directed by Kimille Howard

In the satric play Strong Face, no one in Follywood is able to see that actress Bentley Jones is a woman.  

Maybe it's her energy, or her hair, or just her skin. But whatever it is, in Philana Omorotionmwan's satric play Strong Face, no one in Follywood is able to see that actress Bentley Jones is a woman.  

Not even her hip-pop star girlfriend, or her man-in-a-dress rival. 

But when Bentley learns that a major studio has green-lit a slavery-themed biopic guaranteed to make a star of its female lead, she must decide if she's ready for her real close up.
