Complete opposites Darecia and Jacob struggle to civilly co-parent their teenage son, Ohaji. When a riot that breaks out after a Black teenager is killed by police causes a lockdown, the two are trapped together in their Michigan Park neighborhood – with Ohaji nowhere to be found. The same night is then relived through an alternate reality in a thrilling and captivating reflection of DC – and those who call it home – outside the political bubble.

Get the full Signature experience at home during our next SigWorks: Monday Night Play Reading with takeout from Ali’s Bar. Order our famous grilled cheese or vegan chili – each will come with a drink and one of Signature’s famous chocolate chip cookies. If that isn’t enough cookies for you, add a half dozen more (or just order cookies for dinner, we won’t tell)! We will have it ready for you on Monday, September 21 before the play. Choose a time between noon and 6PM to pick up, come by the Theatre, and we’ll meet you at the door with your order.
