Check it out!
Written by: Penelope Lowder
Directed by: Michael A. Shepperd
A story about the absurdity of racism.
STORY: With a hostile takeover of a neighborhood block party and altruistic dreams of gentrification, Penelope Lowder’s newest play, set in LA's historic "WEST ADAMS" district suggests that perhaps reshaping a newly adopted neighborhood in your image isn’t as lofty as one might think.
A BRILLIANT debut that bodes well for the rest of the season. Playwright Penelope Lowder has her finger firmly ON THE PULSE of American culture. There are PLENTY OF LAUGHS to be had here — BEFORE THE HORROR SETS IN. Multiple award-winning director Michael A. Shepperd and a wonderful cast lift the rock off Lowder’s dishearteningly PERFECT PLAY and let the creepy-crawlies squiggle freely. - LA Times, CRITICS' CHOICE
