Fabulation, or The Re-Education of Undine


A successful publicist finds herself pregnant, broke, and plunged into a world of welfare mothers and drug addicts, forcing her to confront the family she left behind, in a revival of Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage's dark comedy.

The Off-Broadway production of Fabulation, or The Re-Education of Undine closed January 13, 2019. For current Off-Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

From the producers: This satirical tale, set in New York City, follows successful African-American publicist Undine, as she stumbles down the social ladder after her husband steals her hard-earned fortune. Broke and now pregnant, Undine is forced to return to her childhood home in the Brooklyn projects, where she must face the challenges of the life she left behind.

Author Lynn Nottage's works often deals with the lives of marginalized people. She is a professor of Playwriting at Columbia University. Nottage was the first (and remains the only) woman to have won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama twice; the first in 2009 for "Ruined," and the second in 2017 for "Sweat." "Fabulation" originally premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizon in 2004.

The title role of Undine is played by Cherise Boothe, who starred in Nottage's Ruined Off-Broadway. Completing the cast are Mayaa Boateng, Marcus Callender, J. Bernard Calloway, Dashiell Eaves, Ian Lassiter, Nikiya Mathis, and Heather Alicia Simms. Obie Award winner Lileana Blain-Cruz directs.
