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.

Nottage's Crumbs From the Table of Joy has been seen around the country.
