TODD LOGAN, playwright, producer

“Whether we like it or not, we still have major divides in this country. Most of us still go to bed at night in cities, communities and neighborhoods that are segregated by race, religion, ethnicity and/or class.

I wanted to write a play that encourages greater tolerance and understanding by spurring self-examination and promoting compelling civil discourse.

Making the audience the jury and then inviting the ‘jury’ for a post-show discussion provides a forum to begin that process.”
