Also in the cast are Daniel Breaker, Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Stephen Kunken, Robert Montano, Melle Powers, Keith Randolph Smith and Myra Lucretia Taylor. The play is billed this way: "Fabulation concerns Undine (Charlayne Woodard), a successful publicist who, upon finding herself pregnant and broke, is plunged into a topsy-turvy world of welfare mothers and drug addicts, and forced to confront the family she left behind."

Nottage is newly hot as a writer, due to the acclaim accorded her currently running Off-Broadway work, Intimate Apparel. The play won the 2004 New York Critics Circle Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play, the 2004 John Gassner Award and an Obie Award for its star Viola Davis. Nottage's Crumbs From the Table of Joy has been seen around the country.
