What happens when conflicting emotions inhabit the same space? When a new vocabulary is devised to disguise the same old thoughts? In this barbed satire of political correctness, Rebecca Gilman's provocative characters spin a web of their own, revealing the latent racism that may lurk beneath the porcelain veneer of a liberated conscience.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Izzy | 9/1/2013

    " A well-written play but I liked some of her other work better. I think it was a little messy towards the end of the play, while the beginning was very tight and put together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susie | 7/18/2013

    " This was good, it just wasn't as good as her other plays that I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 7/2/2013

    " A moving play about political correctness and the ongoing issues of racism set against the backdrop of a college campus "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sonya | 12/30/2012

    " navel gazing- thought loop play. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taylor | 9/1/2012

    " Miami needs to do this play. Questions of racism have never been so frankly discussed on our campus as they are in Gilman's play. It is not the most eloquent in dialogue, characterization, etc, but the message is clear, crisp, biting and refreshing. It leaves you with both frustration and hope. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 8/31/2012

    " A great play about a dean of a college exploring racism and political correctness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgia | 2/24/2012

    " I just read this book. It is funny but the point is so very important when it comes to issues of race of identity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Kleist | 12/4/2011

    " This play was interesting and asked wonderful social questions. Definitely unique. I liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Izetta Autumn | 1/13/2011

    " An examination of race at an elite private college - the central character is a white woman dealing with guilt and misunderstandings of race. Sarah Jessica Parker was rumored to have purchased the rights to this and to have made it into a movie for HBO. "

    " Interesting and unflinching look at racism in higher ed. "

    " I know it's a play ... but so is Shakespeare!

    A great examination of perception and the crazy loops it puts us through. Feeling versus social consciousness versss morality. It's all here .... And you can read it in 45 minutes. "
