    This is a well crafted, funny, character-driven exploration of some of our most pressing social issues: police brutality, gun violence, racial tumult, manhood and ways of loving. A very pointed and well-crafted narrative from Tracey Conyer Lee that deftly moves through tough subject matter without seeming preachy or heavy-handed. It packs quite a few punches, and the humor catches you by surprise. Can't wait to see this on stage.

    Conyer Lee puts her forward-thinking view of life, her acute observation of human nature and truthful humor into each script and Rabbit Summer is no exception. This play has cultural relevancy, clarity, shrewd levity and symbolism that stirs the imagination. Conyer Lee gives a fresh view to controversial subject matter that has the capacity to change hearts and minds.

    Although Rabbit Summer is a personal story about the clash between blacks and the police, it is so much more than that. It is a brilliant story about family, marriage, deceit, friendship and that standing up for what's right comes with consequences. But most importantly, as Conyer Lee masterfully unfolds hidden agendas (both literally and figuratively), more is revealed about the deep-rooted need to search for identity. Conyer Lee does not tip toe around the hard questions, even when her characters do. I learned much through this play, and feel privileged to have been on its journey.

    This woman is a powerhouse: passionate, strong, sassy and basically brilliant. Conyer Lee has a way of weaving incredibly powerful social/political statements within the beating heart of intimate and dramatic relationships, creating flawed, fantastic, beauty-full human beings for whom we care and root and invest. Rabbit Summer is a fascinating ride through the season of a relationship, and the profound, long-lasting effects of miscommunication and mis-steps. Furthermore, from my admittedly "very white" perspective, Conyer Lee opens a door to develop awareness, shed ignorance, and develop compassion in a way that simultaneously challenges and embraces.

    Everyone watch out for Conyer Lee: this woman is bold, fierce, and is definitely a name you will know one day. Not only is her writing natural and provocative, but she approaches timeless social and political issues in a unique way with a revelatory light. It would be impossible to walk away from her work, unmoved. I believe with the help of her words, these "timeless" issues - of race and discrimination, etc. - will one day be out of time and left in the past.
