This is a story where we don’t know how it ends.
It starts in August 1972, my dad sealing the deal on a used two-tone cobalt/sky blue Cutlass while my mom and sisters and I sit inside on vinyl-covered bench seats, my mom protesting the very premise of “(If Loving You is Wrong) I Don’t Want to be Right” by Luther Ingram.

Book Review: Barn 8

Cut to: Emily Beyda's The Body Double.

Review: Single Black Female
Despite the constant reminders of a ticking clock, Lisa B. Thompson’s Single Black Female is stuck in the Nineties. Currently running at Ground Floor Theatre under the direction of Matrex Kilgore, this play hits some graceful notes despite an overall dissonance for the world we reside in today.
