    This play is breathtaking. Literally. I found myself holding my breath as I read it for fear of being spotted by the characters. It is an intimate play with a far-reaching impact. I felt like I was peeking through a neighbor's window. Having spent the majority of my life in the deep south, I have known men like Jeff and Dylan and counted myself lucky to not be embraced by their circle of influence. This is a chilling account of the casual nature of oppressive hate. I adore this play. It is bold, unflinching, and so very necessary.

    A powerful, moving look into white supremacy and bigotry as the actions take on inexplicable form. Well done.

    A consistently surprising, unsettling, and darkly hilarious exploration of hatred, bigotry, and white nationalism. When the dramatic focus shifts in the second half, the world so disturbingly drawn in act one is complicatedly thrown off balance, and new and essential voices are centered in the story arc. The play works its way steadily up to a disturbing climax that is both satisfying and troubling. I hope to see a production of this soon!
