good friday

The ricochet of bullets breaks the hush of academia’s ivory halls and four students and a teacher are trapped in a classroom. Attempts to remain calm are shattered by each new wave of terror and tension coils to the point of asphyxia. good friday tackles millennnial feminism and the intersection of gun violence and sexual violence.

good friday

    This play is a revelation. Palpably tense, unflinching, and beautifully-written. It investigates politics and violence with depth and maturity, as thoughtful as it is provocative, as caring as it is confrontational. I still think about it all the time.

    I heard about The Flea’s production of good friday on a podcast this morning and was bummed I wouldn’t get to see it — but was thrilled to see the script on NPX. Colon’s writing is taut yet poetic and the play is chock full of shocking twists. Reading the script has only made me want to see a production more, and devour more from this bold, exciting playwright!

    This is a play that will keep you on the edge of your seats and takes you places you never see coming. The overlapping dialogue and natural, yet poetic way these women speak are a true testament to the skills of Colon as an exciting new playwright. Love how this play explores the layers of rape culture and how social media impacts messages and movements.
