Told through the bold perspective of a vivacious drag queen named Tanvi, Naturally Tan follows Tanya Thomas’ desperation to fit in as a minority in Singapore and her search for acceptance in America.
Fueled by assimilation pains, Tanya delves into the heart of colorism that plagues the Asian diaspora, the complexities of racial identity, and the consequences of damaging beauty standards.
Will Tanya hide behind her insecurities forever or will she embody her worth as a woman of color, mother, and artist?
Naturally Tan is a one-woman seriocomic play written and performed by Tanya Thomas, with direction and development by Jessica Lynn Johnson. It is an official selection of the 10th Anniversary of SoloFest 2021.
