Great writing, Masterful, Relevant, Great acting, Must see

See it if You want to see an experimental play about a very relevant subject matter. You want to see 4 actors really gel together in this performance

Don't see it if You don't have an open mind. You are not interested in relevant experimental plays that touch on serious matters. Read more

Ambitious, Absorbing, Epic, Confusing, Relevant

See it if You are interesting in a moving, challenging experimental play about African-Americans killed by police. Great set. Very well acted.

Don't see it if You prefer a linear, well-explained plot, or don't like the 4th wall to be broken.

The New York Times
June 11th, 2017

"Many emotions vie for dominance among the young men living in limbo in the bleak and beautiful new drama by Ijames...Ijames shows his characters trying to find the logic in the senselessness. It is a torturous and fruitless process. But as rendered in this production, it radiates an urgent and hypnotic theatrical energy...Directed with delicacy and fluidity by Saheem Ali...The protean actors, all first-rate, endow their roles with a zestful individuality."

Theatre is Easy
June 8th, 2017

"An experimental theatre piece about black men killed by the police, 'Kill Move Paradise' is both a meditation on what happens after death, and a celebration of the richness of life...Such subject matter could easily become heavy, but this team wisely chooses to focus not on the tragedy of death, but on the vitality of life...All four actors are excellent, and manage to create specific characters from a script that is more experimental than expositional...Ali has assembled a first-rate team."
