2016 RELENTLESS AWARD SEMIFINALIST
In the aftermath of a hate crime, Goon befriends Carly Uhlenbeek, the only black girl in school. Things start to go south when bad parental advice, passive-aggressive acts, and ill-formed gestures of kindness create a “White Guilt Perfect Storm” that threatens to drown their relationship.
“This play is hugely theatrical, downright hilarious, and has great compassion for all of its young characters. A brilliant satire examining the ways in which even the most well-intentioned white folks working to stand up against racism can still perpetuate it. ”
