RABBIT SUMMER

2018 PRINCESS GRACE AWARD FINALIST

10 page sample

This quickfire two act tragicomedy navigates the fracture points of a marriage and a friendship. The Faisons are the epitome of Black Love. Wilson idealizes his marriage to Ruby and his job as a police officer in the shadow of the BlackLivesMatter movement. He smiles through pain Ruby wishes he would share. When family friend, Claire, loses her husband to the quick trigger of a white cop, Wilson is forced to examine his legacy of manhood, being black versus being blue, and what it means to “live your truth” in an America built on lies.
