That space-consuming title may seem strange. But that’s because, in a play within a play, six characters search for a story, Pirandello-like, but don’t really know what they are doing, trying to probe historically obscure genocide. The work by 32 year-old  Jackie Sibblies Drury has confronted and entertained audiences in New York, Chicago and Washington(“…dark, funny and unruly…” Washington Post) and garnered the prestigious Edgerton New Play Award. The seemingly improvising performers seek to shed light on a centuries old subjugation of native African people by German colonists. However, Drury says that the result “ends up centered on America and how our concepts of race become confused…and inescapable.” Consider the proximities in the venue.

The actors may be truly in your face.

The title takes up so much space that we decided to take charge and shorten it. Kind of like how, in a play within a play, six characters try to control their search for a story, Pirandello-like,  but don’t really know what they are doing. They aim to probe historically obscure genocide. The work by 32 year-old  Jackie Sibblies Drury has confronted and entertained audiences in New York, Chicago and Washington(“…dark, funny and unruly…” Washington Post) and garnered the prestigious Edgerton New Play Award.
