    Sukey, The Mermaid, and a Tale of the Gullah Island

    Dubbed "devise," this play – written by Whatsinthemirror? ED Tarik Daniels and participants of the Write What’s Right Theater Project – is based on an African fairy tale. But this isn't rated G, instead the story tackles mental health, domestic violence, culture, and more.
