by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Directed by Eric Ting 

Feb 13–Apr 12, 2020
A.C.T.’s Strand Theater


In the editorial office of a Manhattan magazine, competing twentysomethings Ani, Dean, and Kendra are only interested in scoring a book deal to kick-start a career. But after disaster strikes, which one of them will write the story?

MacArthur “Genius” winner Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (Appropriate, Everybody) reunites with Cal Shakes Artistic Director Eric Ting, who directed the playwright’s An Octoroon (2017) at Berkeley Rep. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2016, this scalpel-sharp dark comedy evolves into a provocative exploration of how we cope with trauma and the tales we tell each other to escape.

This production contains strong language, loud noises, violence, and mature themes. For additional context about this production, click here. Note: Includes spoilers.
