After that, her entire life changes as she seeks to find out her true identity. Told in a series of explosive vignettes, Fragmented, presented as a full production, explores family, politics, and the challenges and joys of being multicultural in America.
The Fragmented cast includes Playwright/Casting Director Murrell Myers, Emily Marso and Brennan Urbi. The Our Perspective team is Executive Producer Mia Park and Producers Murrell Myers, Sydney Mercado and Stephen George.
