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

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.
