Two Millennials sit on a couch behind laptops while social networking
and discussing politics. Everything will be just fine…
"This is that rare play that says what needs to be said without
any editorializing and does it in a riveting 15 minutes."
"Iman Aaliyah and Jenna Kuerzi, both in subtle, pitch-perfect performances."

ABOUT THE SHOW
BUZZFEED, DONALD TRUMP & DEAD BLACK KIDS was presented as a part of the 2016 Philadelphia Women's Theatre Festival in Philadelphia, PA. This 15 minute piece takes place pre-election in 2016 in a small town. Two senior high school girls are best friends working on a group project together. They sit, they text, they Facebook... then they start with, "You know what I hate?" and we spiral from gross cafeteria food, unfortunate classmates and eventually, politics. It seems like hate brings these girls together- but can it also tear them apart?
