The audio play makes good use of its svelte 20-minute running time, telling a story of race, politics and mental health that is as moving as it is enlightening.
The featured projects also reflect on everything from anti-Asian hate crimes to the regrets of a Latinx guard of the U.S. Border Patrol.
Profile Theatre is staging the production in the Zidell family’s old Barge Building.

In one hour and 45 minutes, the play takes on many intriguing ideas—including nostalgia, toxic masculinity and hell.
What silliness through yonder window breaks?
The Artist Rep audio production is a sonic universe of disparate and delightful characters.
“But when I want to realize my potential—when a Black man wants to become a playwright—oh my God, this is the exclusive preserve of the white elites.”
The film extravaganza will play out on a 50-foot-tall screen at the Oaks Park Hangar.
