Power, love and responsibility – who owns it, who wants it and who deserves it. A 1971 Marine Corps base becomes a collision course over race, women and the exacting cost of doing the right thing.
The New York Times writes, “As thoughtful and probing as Doubt. An arresting, ambitious tale of race relations and the military mindset, filled with the provocative questions and bristling with dialogue for which John Patrick Shanley, a fierce moral sage, is known.”
“Spellbinding. I wouldn’t have thought it possible, but John Patrick Shanley has followed up “Doubt”, the best play of 2004-05, with a play of identical quality.” – Wall Street Journal
