A story on the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse website said, “Who gets to tell the story of race, history and power in America? In this riveting, provocative play, a black student and her white professor – both brilliant, both liberal – debate whether the legacy of slavery defines our past, and our present.

“Tsilala recently completed a two-year position as Assistant Dance Captain/Swing with The Book of Mormon 2nd National Tour. Currently she’s producing and co-hosting a new podcast called ‘UNCK! Getting comfortable with uncomfortable conversations’.

“Her other theater credits include Parable of the Sower (The Public Theater), Satchel Paige and the Kansas City Swing [Cincinnati Playhouse/STLRep], The Color Purple [Troika Bermuda], and Twelfth Night and Romeo & Juliet [Martha's Vineyard Playhouse].

“TV/film credits include Mysteries of Laura, Happyish, Broad City, Canaries and Bushwick Beats.”
