July 23–26, 2020
In the Spring, the pandemic forced us to cancel our stage production of ‘Is God Is.’ We remained committed to this story, and these artists. We’re proud that we found a way to share this story with you as an audio play in July 2020!
Twin sisters go on a rip-roaring, cross-country adventure – from an Eastern metropolis to the deep South to the California desert – to exact righteous revenge. This fiercely modern new play combines the Spaghetti Western, hip-hop, Afropunk, and Old Testament justice for a thrilling listening experience.
“I think the use of genre (western, revenge tragedy) is beautifully married to an Afrofuturist aesthetic that I’m hungry for in the theater. This play is not concerned about being judged or being respectable. Its main concern is with being ruthlessly honest.” -Director James Ijames
