This play is a Coterie commissioned work by noted filmmaker, screenwriter, director, and playwright, Kevin Willmott, who currently serves as a professor of film studies at Kansas University and is hailed as one of the most prolific independent filmmakers today, with films such as Ninth Street, C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America, and Chi-Raq, for which he was executive producer and co-writer with Spike Lee.
