“RASHEEDA SPEAKING [is] an exquisitely tense and often cringingly funny portrait of racial paranoia…Chilling. An incendiary play by Joel Drake Johnson.” —The New York Times.

“…the racially charged atmosphere thickens fast in RASHEEDA SPEAKING, an acidic depiction of race, power and friendship. Blending darkly awkward workplace comedy with intense racial tension, Johnson’s office-politics thriller is not afraid to push buttons hard.” —Time Out (New York).

“A wild ride…a wallop of a play…a thrilling must-see play.” —New York Magazine.

“‘The doctor will see you now’ takes on a whole new meaning in [this] comedy-drama that’s jagged, jolting and just plain terrific.” —New York Daily News.

Tickets: $25 general, $17 senior/student/veterans/teachers. Preview is pay-what-you-wish. Click here.

The recently-widowed “Mother of America” lies helpless in her Mount Vernon bed, ravaged by illness and cared for by the very slaves that are free the moment she dies. The fever dream of terrifying theatricality that follows investigates everything from Martha Washington’s family to her historical legacy.
