    A Special Statement

    All of us at The Acting Company join in solidarity with our artists, audiences and community to condemn and call for an end to systemic racism and unjust violence against Black Americans. We are angered by the racism and white supremacy that has led to the deaths of countless Black and Brown people. We stand with everyone seeking justice for the murders of Tony McDade, George Floyd, Nina Pop, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, and all victims of racist violence. Black Lives Matter.

Despite the 1940s setting, this adaptation distills the distancing near-century of racial oppression into a shocking 90-minute thriller that felt, in this fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat staging, bracingly immediate."
