Media & Reviews
The actors in the play are fully immersed in their roles. It’s evident they’ve developed a trust and ease with one another to effortlessly portray their characters. It’s not only a testament to their commitment to their craft but also to Aurore’s storytelling. Because the characters are relatable, it’s easy to become invested in the lives of Sam, Reed, Marti, Falala and Paris. The play offers an opportunity to reflect on the past and envision a better future.
"As playwright, Aurore deftly wove activism and values playing both in the streets and in living rooms (the political meeting the personal, as the saying goes). As director, her choices kept both the personal and political moving along quickly, snappy in dialog, and playing very close and urgently to the audience."
