Chocolate in Heat
Chocolate in Heat chronicles the life of young Arab-American Aiesha and the men she encounters. The play begins with a violent hate crime Aiesha faces in college and moves back in time to show the steps that led Aiesha to the place where her life would be changed forever. By the way, it’s also funny.
