    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!

    "Amerikin" navigates the dangerous waters of hate groups and isolated communities, deftly weaving in other themes (from postpartum depression, to racial revelations of DNA testing, to entrenched racism). Most of the characters are laughable and repulsive and yet their stories are believable, even when their actions are unforgivable.
