Women of Candor: I Understood the Assignment

Four Day Weekend Comedy Theater - Dallas

Women of Candor is the funny, fabulous, and freeing experience that is fulfilling! Through the performance art of storytelling, the Women of Candor cast brings the real Real—real laughs, real cheers. Grab your bestie, your colleague, your momma, your sis. Settle in for stories told from the theme of “I Understood the Assignment!”

We invite you to experience this one-night-only show!

Audience Responses

“Let’s just say that from the intro I was in tears, and I laughed harder than I have in a long while. From the very beginning it was made clear that laughter brings healing and boy did I feel like I received a huge dose of healing that night. I truly did not realize how much I needed to hear and see black women tell their stories in this manner. The Women of Candor stories were gripping yet loaded with humor.” - Cessilye Smith
