He Did It

    A blistering, sharp dark comedy that explores in a complex manner the ways that toxic patriarchy pits women of various genders and femme-identifying folks against one another in order to maintain its insidious hold on the world. Lynett's characters are deftly written and, as always, her eye towards their intersectional identities provides an essential level of nuance that must be brought to the conversations and issues she holds space for in her pieces. The rhythm of the dialogue is on point, and the dissolution of the line between entertainment and indictment brilliant. The final moment is a gut-punching coda.

    I knew from the first few pages that this would be a play that would haunt me. What’s happening in this play are ugly conversations that we would love to just ignore but we need to confront them. Lynett has written a play that will leave its audience in a stunned state and after they slowly get up from their seat they will need to discuss for days.
