    DELIVERY is a beautiful and heart-breaking exploration of the lives of three students whose worlds have been touched by police violence. Robinson has gifted us with the opportunity to spend some time with three incredible, funny, talented, goofy young artists -- it hurts when it's over.

    There is an amazing, incredible honesty and remarkably genuine quality to the voices of these characters, even (or, rather, especially) in their most heightened moments. Robinson has a remarkable ear for the spirit of speech. Her time as a teacher has made her a clear and vital conduit for the hearts and minds of our hurting youth. There is much to be said about the strength of these students, they're the best, they are survivors manifesting a salvation through art...but I was also struck by Tolivar, her patience and perception, her noticing the necessity of beauty in dark times.

    This play absolutely shook me to my core, in the best way possible. A brutally honest portrayal of the devastating effects of police brutality on a community, this play is also filled with heart and humor. I sincerely hope that it receives a production soon.
