Aleshea Harris’ award-winning play collides the ancient, the modern, the tragic, the spaghetti Western, hip-hop and Afropunk.

“I wanna step on somethin for once. See what it feel like. Must feel good.”

When a letter arrives from the mother they thought was dead, 21 year old twins Racine and Anaia travel from the Dirty South to the California desert and a yellow house with teal shutters.

They are on a mission to avenge her past and ready to take down anyone who stands in their way.

“We ain’t killers”
“How you figure that? … Iss in the blood.”

Aleshea Harris’ revenge tale about two women seeking justice and taking control of their own narratives, has received the Relentless Award and Obie Award for Playwriting. The UK Premiere will be directed by Royal Court Associate Director Ola Ince.

'A snarly new master of high-octane carnage has risen into view. And she—yes, she—is putting her own audacious stamp on that most venerable of pop genres…Is God Is sees fit to bring down the house.'

New York Times

'Excellent revenge fantasy…furious and incandescent.'

Time Out New York

'A rich, funny, unnerving, exhilarating gold mine.'
