Three people sit in a living room. A white married couple. And a black man. Drinking lemonade. And making small talk. However, as the night goes on, what starts as a safe and silly sex farce suddenly becomes darker and more violent as hidden prejudices bubble up to the surface. In most contemporary films, the insecurities and anxieties that control our daily lives remain invisible, but Stacy Has A Thing For Black Guys operates with a heightened sense of awareness of the historical and social context in which we now live, offering a sharp and fiercely funny commentary on how we all choose to avoid honest conversations with others and ourselves about sex, gender, and race in America.

Stacy Has A Thing For Black Guys is a screen adaptation of a stage play written by Ruben Carrazana which received its world premiere production in the summer of 2016 in Dallas by the theater collective known as The Tribe, winner of the 2016 Dallas Observer Mastermind Award. The stage production played to sold-out houses and was awarded a Special Support Grant from the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, was named an Outstanding New Play/Musical by the Dallas-Fort Worth Theater Critics Forum, was named a “Best New Play By A Local Writer” by TheaterJones, and was recommended for the Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award.
