photoThe brutal title of the recent play from a powerful drama by playwright John Henry Redwood reflects the bigotry of the Jim Crow South. We meet the Cheeks family and their friend Yaveni Aarohnson, struggling against punishing racism. It's a story of love and loss, of bonds forged and broken and an unflinching look at America's past.


John Henry Redwood, Actor and Playwright and Author of "No Niggers, No Jews, No Dogs."

Adam Zahler, Producing Director of the New Repertory Theatre in Newton, Massachusetts.
