Overview

REVIEWS

Houston Chronicle: "Gripping from the very first scenes, this play has twists and turns that travel down difficult roads until the bitter end."

Broadway World: “The play itself represents one-half of the experience. The rest comes from the discussion people have afterward.”

Houston Press: "Stellar cast...It's a real love letter to Houston talent and a chance for audiences to meet different talents."


Developed as part of the 2019 Alley All New Festival.  Jeff Browning, a new father desperate for community, casually follows his buddy’s advice and tries to join a white supremacist group…but the results of his ancestry test prove surprising.  Amerikin follows Jeff as serious consequences come knocking and the line between "us" and "them" gets incredibly blurry.
