A remarkable stage play by one of America's most brilliant writers. Starring two of Key West's top actresses -- Melody G. Moore and Tammy Shanley. A startling encounter on a New York subway platform leads two strangers to a run-down tenement where a life or death decision must be made. Ms. Black -- a reformed murderer-turned-savior -- has just saved Mrs. White -- a disillusioned, intellectual, atheist academic -- from commiting suicide in that subway. In that small, rundown apartment, the two women begin a conversation that leads each back through her own history, mining the origins of two fundamentally opposing worldviews. All Mrs. White wants to do is leave and get on with it. All Ms. Black wants to do is convince her not to. Which one of the women has the greater faith and belief in how they see the world creates a riveting 90 minutes of drama. A beautifully crafted, consistently thought-provoking, and deceptively intimate work by one of the most insightful writers of our time. Produced by TheatreXP.
"McCarthy's [writing is] the most laudable, his characters the most fully inhabited, his sense of place the most bloodworthy and thoroughly felt of any living writer's." -- Esquire Magazine
"McCarthy meditates on creation, stares at it. He does not look past appearances, he looks through them...[he] is writing entirely against the grain of our times, against the haste and the distraction and the moral diffusion... we experience a more vivid and consequential feeling about human destiny, about good and evil and matters of the spirit." -- The New Republic
