"Playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury has dropped us into a rehearsal room with a multiethnic theater ensemble (one black woman, one white woman, two black men, two white men) as they try improv exercises to help them develop a show about the Herero, an African people who were nearly exterminated by German colonists in what is considered the first genocide of the 20th century. White actors improving what it might have been like to be exterminators, while black actors try to get in touch with the exterminated—what could possibly go wrong? The real-life ensemble ratchets up the tension while still unearthing moments of gallows humor. The chemistry is especially charged between G. To'mas Jones and Jason Sanford, the black male actors who are both allies and adversaries." (BRENDAN KILEY) Pony World Theatre at
