Rastus and Hattie  
16th Street Theater at Online Stream Rastus and Hattie
 
Needra and Marlene enjoy a perfect post-racial friendship until two problematic robots walk into their christening celebration. These automatons, based on Westinghouse's 1930 brown-skinned robots, plus a glitch in the time-space continuum, place them at opposite ends of society in an alternate past. This provocative comedy jumps from the outrageous to the profound as it delves into our traumatic legacy and explores new ideas about moving forward. Recorded at Chicago's Classick Studios, this audio play will be paired with illustrations created by artist Roy Thomas.
