The only daughter of comic legend Richard Pryor and Jewish go-go dancer-turned-astronomer Shelley Bonus, hilariously reflects on growing up a biracial, half-Jewish child in Beverly Hills in/during less politically correct times.
Fried Chicken & Latkes, written and conceived by Rain Pryor, is a hero’s journey from the standpoint of a person born into a world of “Us vs. Them” – but not quite an “us” and not quite a “them”.

 

This autobiographical cabaret-styled show explores the challenges of her childhood as she navigates a life filled with diversity. Discover how Pryor finds her identity in both worlds, and works to change ours.
