"CRAFTED WITH COMPASSION, INTELLIGENCE AND INSIGHT.”  — THEATREMANIA 

Investigating the hot-button topics of gender and race politics, Anna Ziegler (“newly and justly hot” -New York Times) tells a story about our crippling desire to fit in.

"At Aurora Theatre, the production is compelling and all consuming, as two separate stories emerge into one — only to continue to clash in the end."
