OVERVIEW

Bristling & provocative.

The New York Times

A barnburner of a play.

The Washington Post 

They’re both liberal. They’re both women. They’re both brilliant.

But very quickly, discussions of grammar and Google turn to race and reputation. And before they know it, they’re in dangerous territory, facing stunning implications that can’t be undone.

The Washington Post hails it as “scintillating,” adding that it’s “one of the best plays about who gets to tell the story of America, and how.”

Timely and intelligently provocative. Burgess deserves a lot of congratulations for crafting a piece that is so needed and so smart.

US1

Energetic and impassioned. Edgy and topical.
