Hairy and Sherri (Sharon) are an “adorkable” interracial couple living in gentrified East Austin. When they very graciously and publicly open their home to Ryshi, a 12-year-old former foster care youth with special needs, Hairy and Sherri are confronted with the ugly realities of their marriage and “good” intentions.
“Hairy & Sherri” is a biting, dark comedy that exposes the limitations of the Texas foster care system and the evils of very well-intentioned people.
“Hairy & Sherri” was developed in PlySpace’s artist-in-residence program (supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts).
