A play by David Jacobi. Directed by Tristan B. Johnson. In the aftermath of a hate crime, Junior High pariah Goon befriends one of the victims, Carly, the only black girl in school. While the town plans a rally “to destroy racism forever,” a youthful romance blossoms and the two must navigate the pitfalls of falling in love while dealing with the town’s prying eyes, especially those of Wikipedia Jones, the crime-solving son of the Chief of Police. Passive-aggressive antics, bad parental advice, and ill-informed gestures of kindness create a “White Guilt Perfect Storm” that threatens to make the course of true love a rocky road indeed.
