In these two short, intense plays, a young African American protagonist embarks on voyages of the mind through her life, seeking to reconcile her racial heritage with a culture that rewards whiteness. Kennedy, a seminal writer of the Black Arts Movement and later, uses hallucinatory imagery to depict the fractured mental landscapes of her leading women, who are both autobiographical and shockingly contemporary. With an entr’acte by Jackie Sibblies Drury, winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

These one act plays by Adrienne Kennedy take a sharply critical view of racism in the United States over several decades of the twentieth century. Kennedy's imagery is stark. She evokes many subjects including sexual assault, suicide, miscarriage. The n-word is used in these plays by actors who are Black and actors who are white.
