(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

THE FORTY-YEAR-OLD VERSION: A black woman playwright who has just turned forty is trying to get her play produced while earning enough money to live faces obstacles to her success. Why are so many pieces of performance art showing how bad the situation is for the artist? This is a look at the obstacles a playwright faces in getting their work produced. The material is ripe for humor but remains a little restrained. Released 10/09/20; available on Netflix streaming. Rating: high +1 (-4 to +4)
