    Wow, this is a roller coaster of a play that is so relevant it's scary and is so funny that I laughed out loud multiple times. It's an excellent work, full of characters that are relatable and a story that feels like it could happen tomorrow. I highly recommend this fantastic new play.

    This play could not be more relevant for the current climate. Sam Gooley has created the perfect blend of humor, intrigue and frustration to portray one of the top issues facing our country today: racism. Gooley's dialogue is sharp, natural and his character's are top notch. These combined with his brilliant use of technology in the script are sure to make this one hell of a production. The audiences will have a lot of amazing things to chew on when they leave the theatre!
