Grade recommendation: 10+

A young, black cop shoots an unarmed black kid. The story becomes a hit play, and the hit play is about to become a big-budget film, and Lila – the cop at the heart of it all – doesn’t want anything to do with it. When the white playwright comes knocking at her door, followed by a washed-up child star slated to play the film’s lead, the unusual collection of characters try to bridge their differences by staging a farcical reading of the play in the middle of Lila’s living room. With irreverence and razor-sharp wit, Kat Sandler’s ripped-from-the-headlines social satire explores art, identity and how we engage with experiences that aren’t our own.

“Dramatically charged, timely and wickedly funny”. -Now Magazine
