    It's official (according to me): Inda Craig-Galván is one of the best playwrights working today. In this play, she tackles thorny issues of activism, authenticity, and deftly employs magical realism to dramatize the fear that Black people feel stepping out their front door into a hostile world every day. That she does this with a sharp and often funny hand is the icing on the cake. Oh, and she makes her scripts compelling reads too. I'm a big fan, is what I'm saying.

    A powerful look at the systems that oppress and keep racism at large as activists work to change the world with grass roots and viral media. Perhaps together they can help empower others. Well done.

    An amazing, briskly-moving read! There are necessary conversations and vital issues explored here that I haven't seen tackled theatrically. Craig-Galvan deftly examines the stasis and despair black people face as they try to navigate a world filled with persistent and structurally entrenched racism and hatred, and an unspoken expectation that black activists must do the work of liberating themselves in the absence of white folks willing to try and dismantle these systems on a large scale themselves. She specifically zeroes in on the cultural and individual traumas of black women in an extraordinarily complex, nuanced fashion. Must be produced!

    Gina's a social media activist who expresses her political commentary as art, blogs full-time from her living room, posts for-profit articles on "negrolicious" content, and sells big businesses ad space on her Lefty websites. Dru's opposite; uninterested in fame, unfazed by praise, focused on terrestrial progress, "off the grid," does gig-work to survive, and, so, folk hero. Gina sees their meeting as opportunity. Dru weathers grilling for a chance to help. A clash between philosophies and temperaments, talking and listening, screening and facing. Craig-Galván renders racism, fear, and hope into raw dramatic forms.

    Great and timely premise and fascinating characters! The playwright has such wonderful facility with dialogue that made the characters’ dynamic and relationship real, and gave the play a great flow.
