About the Show

Winner of the 2018 Obie Award for playwright, director, and lead actors, IS GOD IS is an epic woman’s revenge play that takes its cues from the Spaghetti Western, hip hop, Afropunk, the ancient, modern, and the tragic. African American twin sisters journey from the Dirty South to California in blood-soaked travels. It’s both a satire and an earnest exploration of what it means to claim justice and survive violence. Funny, triumphant, and surprising, Is God Is asks us to consider the roots, futility, and consequences of cyclical violence. 

Contains mature themes, including physical violence. Children should be 14 years of age or older to attend this performance.
