“A NEW AMERICAN PLAY GRAPPLING WITH SERIOUS, TIMELY ISSUES IN A THOUGHTFUL WAY.”
-The Wrap

Kendra finds herself in a Miami police station at 4 am because her 18-year-old son, Jamal, is missing. All the rookie cop on duty will tell her is that Jamal has been “identified in an incident.” Hot off its Broadway run, this highly charged drama takes a brave look at race, gender, power, and the dangerous dynamics at play when a young African-American man intersects with law enforcement.
R, Mature content & language, including racial slurs.
