"A sizzling new drama of race, real estate and sexual betrayal"
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

February 8 - March 9, 2014 in Goodman's Owen Theatre

Around 2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission

Love. Race. Fear. Money. This dark comedy from Tracey Scott Wilson pushes every button.

Jackson is a young, successful African American attorney determined to build a life in the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of his youth. When he returns “home” with his girlfriend and troubled best friend—both white—in tow, the trio are soon forced to confront the simmering racial and sexual tensions that exist both inside their home, and outside their apartment.
