"The incarceration of African-American men for nonviolent crimes, and the consequent derailment of their lives, is a main concern of this quietly frenzied play, directed by Kip Fagan with a distancing, cockeyed surreality at the Wild Project...with grimy, water-stained walls that look like the inside of a cardboard box, Arnulfo Maldonado’s set gives you a clue about how that will go." -- on THE WORLD MY MAMA RAISED, New York Times.
