JAW Play Reading: a hit dog will holler

Written by Inda Craig-Galván
Directed by Jade King Carrol

When an agoraphobic political commentator, who lives her life online, has her home invaded by a boots-on-the-ground activist, she must reckon with the legitimacy of her role in the revolution. The two form an unlikely and complex bond, as they deal with manifestations of the fears that accompany being Black women in America.
