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