Masking Our Blackness

    This brilliant gem begins as a carefree evening with friends and blossoms into a devastating Jordan Peele-esque nightmare. A theatrical feast for the senses that should not be missed.

    Durham gets a lot across in a mere 15 pages and it's done quite theatrically. This is a potent, powerful play that is both political and authentic. Strong message without polemics. This play will stay with me for some time -- and that's without even seeing it staged.

    A very funny play ... right up until it's not. Powerful and troubling and one that stays with you.
