    His Shadow shows us the journey of compliant athlete to engaged activist and left me hoping more athletes start using their voices to engage issues important to them. I saw the production of this play at 16th Street in Berwyn, IL. Anybody who doesn't believe people like Colin Kaepernick should be applauded for their activism needs to see this play and empathize with a character who, like Kaepernick and others, begins to see the importance of using their voice to shine a light on issues that might be a tad more important than what ends up on a scoreboard.

    His Shadow tells an important struggle with ambition, jealousy, love, self-worth, and activism. When trying to accomplish our own goals, sometimes we forget we are all connected and part of a bigger picture. One small action or act of protest can change the world. A necessary play for those who wonder if they can make a difference, Webb lets her audience know that yes we can.

    Everybody knows THE LIGHT or soon will, but I wanted to offer big thumbs-up for Loy's next play, HIS SHADOW, which is equally full of heart, guts and remarkable observation. Another terrific play by a playwright who truly understands what motivates and what petrifies her characters— characters that in one guise or another, we have all met somewhere in our real lives.
