Introvert Dara M Wilson and her mathlete friend Claudia travel to New Orleans, where Dara meets Claudia’s attractive friend, Scott. Dara keeps trying to connect with this handsome nerd on a pub crawl, but it just isn’t working - until Dara and Scott bond over social justice, institutionalized oppression, race relations, fighting the good fight, and the school to prison pipeline.
Dara’s story was told live onstage at Bawdy Storytelling's 'Jackpot' show at the Verdi Club in San Francisco, June 2018.
