Description

Leo, Misha, Ralph, and Dawn are old friends. The two couples have a lot in common--good educations, progressive politics, a taste for culture. But when a racially motivated incident with the cops leaves Leo shaken, he decides he must take extreme measures in order to survive. Suzan-Lori Parks' newest work reveals how easily fissures can form in the social contracts we build with one another when confronted with difficult questions about race and identity.

Reviews

An original whose fierce intelligence and fearless approach to craft subvert theatrical convention and produce a mature and inimitable art that is as exciting as it is fresh.--August Wilson
No work produced by an English-language dramatist of our time surpasses Suzan-Lori Parks for depth, complexity, poetry, originality, insight, and stunning dramatic power.--Tony Kushner
Parks's dislocating stage devices, stark but poetic language and fiercely idiosyncratic images transform her work into something haunting and marvelous.--Time magazine
