YOUR BEST AMERICAN GIRL
…is an original, solo short play written and performed by Ciarlene Coleman. A world premiere, one-woman music and dance spectacle, Ciarlene grapples with what it takes for a mixed race military kid to become the ideal American girl.

It was directed by Yari Cervas and produced by MaArte Theatre Collective, with stage management by James Ramirez, projections by Nicholas Hessling, choreography by Patrick Mayuyu, and costumes by Bertha Tsai.
The world premiere production received several 2019 Artist Awards from the Festival, including Outstanding World Premiere, Critic’s Pick, Best of Fest, and a Cultural Exchange Award, in which the Festival will send YOUR BEST AMERICAN GIRL to New Zealand and Adelaide Fringe Festivals in 2020.
