    This is an absolutely incredible play, one that we need right now. It's powerful, honest, sincere, and hits perfectly in a very, very sore and disgusting spot in our country. This is a masterful piece of writing, and it should be required viewing for everyone in our country.

    Every theatre in America should be reading this play right now and producing it. It's poignant and unfortunately very timely. I hope to see a production of it very soon.

    This is a POWERFUL piece of theatre that examines the dangerous effects of social media and how the truth can be manipulated to fit a narrative. The unfiltered truth Hashtag Jones throws at the audience about how Black Lives are perceived in America is unsettling, yet necessary. The way it is written gives whoever directs this piece lots of creativity to play with staging. It received a much-deserved standing ovation when performed at my school's Black History Program! Highly recommend!
