The story

A tough, independent woman in Brooklyn is visited by her father, a former revolutionary in the Black liberation movement who seeks to mend their broken relationship. As father and daughter circle one another, old wounds are revealed, generational differences exposed, and blazing truths laid bare. Morisseau’s smart, entertaining and moving story about family, survival and the nature of liberation is at times 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
