"I was seized by Lynn Nottage's raw exploration of labour, race and class politics because the play feels as though it was written for our times, although Nottage began her research in 2011, saw the play first produced in 2015 and, in 2017, won the Pulitzer Prize during its Broadway run. It is rare that a play that was conceived in one time speaks as loudly and as eloquently in another."

- Joel Greenberg, Artistic Director
