Press and Reviews:

“A 90-minute work that is electric, probing and uncomfortably raw…deeply moving…It discusses and dissects and sets the notion of ‘a post-racial society’ on fire. This is a play that needs to be seen.”
— The Plain Dealer

“This is a work that should travel to theaters all over the country; it needs to be seen and heard by everyone who sincerely wants police brutality to cease in America…A catharsis.”
— Cool Cleveland

“A must-see experience for anyone interested in the real world around them.”
— Broadway World

“The window that has opened for all to view the inequity of law enforcement activity in the less advantaged Cleveland neighborhoods. It is a show that begs to be seen by police officers and citizens alike.”
— Talkin’ Broadway

“If you miss Objectively/Reasonable, you will miss one hell of an evocative, engaging, and empowering evening in the theatre…This powerful production needs to be revived again and again.”
— Land of Cleve

“These slice-of-life monologues come in varying shades of anger and disillusionment that do not shy away from ardent social commentary…they pulsate with purpose and artistic integrity.”
