Am I Black Enough Yet? 

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 4 p.m. Continues through Sept. 18 2016
Price: $15
Clinton Johnson raises a host of puzzling questions in his play Am I Black Enough Yet? Through a series of vignettes performed sketch-comedy style, the players challenge the audience to rethink what race means now that science has proven that any two random humans' DNA will be 99.9 percent identical no matter what they look like. If the two people in question come from the same part of the world, speak the same language, dress the same way and use the same slang (as in the skit "Two Black Girls, One of Them White"), why does that .01 percent of DNA matter so much? Tesseract Theatre presents Am I Black Enough Yet? at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 4 p.m. Sunday (September 9 to 18) at the Regional Arts Commission (6128 Delmar Boulevard; www.tesseracttheatre.org). Tickets are $15.
