Actress and playwright Obehi Janice has two first names and talent to spare. Just 26 years old, she was one of three women selected for this year’s XX PLAYLAB, a program that supports the development of new work by promising female playwrights. The result: Fufu & Oreos, her one-woman show about a multicultural 20-something navigating several worlds, which she starred in at the BCA last month. Janice has also had roles with Company One, Zeitgeist Stage Company and Whistler in the Dark, among other local companies, and you can catch her flexing her comedic chops on Thursday Nights at ImprovBoston.
