“A bristling, provocative play” – The New York Times

About the Play

A Powder Keg of Race, History and Public Relations

When Zoe is called into her history professor’s office to discuss a paper about the American Revolution, a civil conversation transforms into an urgent and personal debate. As the conflict intensifies, both women quickly pass the point of no return and must face the consequences. Hailed as “bristling and provocative” by The New York Times, this explosive drama forces us all to examine the ways we judge, the ways we debate, and the ways we condemn.
