A Black family is turned upside down when an antique doll named Gwenevere is rediscovered in the attic. Eric and Raquel confront their own biases about masculinity and race as their young son begins to play with the doll...but nobody knows that Gwenevere is much more than just a doll. So much more.

This production contains adult themes and adult language.
