Following an interracial family living in the Morningside Park area of New York’s Upper West Side over the course of a weekend; TUMBLEWEED is an American Family drama about a young girl named Willow whose off-putting natural hair combined with both her family’s open acceptance of it and lack of maintenance, causes controversy in the household. Tensions stir even more so when they get a visit from the patriarch’s no-nonsense mother, a former affiliate of the Black Panther party. The play explores beauty standards both in and out of the black community, ethnic relations, the mixed race family, coming of age, interracial marriage and parenting, relationships, womanist identity and the visibility of black men in the family dynamic.
