The story

Nina, a tough, independent woman in Brooklyn, is visited by her estranged father, a former revolutionary in the Black Liberation Movement who seeks to mend their broken relationship. As father and daughter circle one another, deep-rooted wounds are discovered, generational differences exposed, and burning truths laid bare.

A smart, entertaining, and moving story about family, survival, and the nature of liberation that is both engrossing and explosive.


“[A] smart and bracing new play about two generations of urban outlaws struggling to stay afloat in the lower depths […] covers vast acres of social and political ground.”
— The New York Times
