"This play is a clever and moving commentary on not only

the rising statistics but also the wide variety of victims.  Rahvaunia has deftly and with vivid grace brought these stories to her audience to educate, illuminate, and define what HIV means in many people's lives. Rahvaunia writes these women well, beautifully in fact.  She performs them even better.


I hope you get the chance to see Rahvaunia and her

wonderful and “important” play.  She will captivate you with

her talent for storytelling and memorable, real characters as she imparts vital information anecdotally without wagging one

solitary finger. I highly recommend it.  Bravo! "

There is nothing quite like the buzz that’s created during the Hollywood Fringe. It is a time filled with risk-taking, courage, hope and independent artists creating new work by any means necessary. Each year, I ask women writers a new series of questions influenced by the Proust Questionnaire and Bernard Pivot’s French series, “Bouillon de Culture.” The goal is to understand the artist’s work and their full nature while allowing them a space to reveal their authentic self. It is a great gift and a true honor to introduce women who will be presenting work in myriad genres, exploring a wide range of topics that allow us to examine who we are as individuals and as a society.

Introducing Rahvaunia Johnson and her show, “tHis Is Very IMPORTANT”

Constance: What do you hope audience members take away after experiencing your show?

Rahvaunia: My show’s message is layered, much like life itself...
